I hardly think a funding cut would extinguish private schools and force everyone to public schools.
You are speculating what people would do.
With more funding, the possibilities are endless. Maybe you are happy with the way things are, but I can dream of a day when the children I teach have just as much of an opportunity that your kids do.

Not sure if this was directed at me or BigRed. But the point is, that the elitist schools don't need the govt funding. They could continue on, as is, with the high fees they charge. There are only so many pools and mod cons the school needs, and really beyond the basics these type of things don't increase TER's (or whatever they call them now lol).
I just don't see it as fair that a school like Pymble, charging around 30-40k a year last I heard? should be given 8 million in one year when public schools are literally falling apart. Again I support private bc it takes the pressure off public. But places like Kings and Pymble don't need govt funding, especially when many of the parents that send their kids there complain about govt expenditure

You guys seem to think that people who send their kids to private schools can afford an extra $6k or so per year per kid. I can tell you now that just isn't the case. You will get an influx of kids into public schools.
Whatever, good luck with getting increased funding. Like lamjam said, I don't think that taking it from private school children is the best option.

Pretty sure I've made that point clear?
When the students I teach have the same opportunities that your own children do, then I will be more than happy to share but if you want an elite private school education for your children, then you should pay for it.
