Remove the requirement on private/public schools to offer free places

Comment 8th July 2010

Private schools should not be required to offer free places as a condition of being granted charitable status.

Why does this matter?

The pressure on private schools to offer free places in order to receive or preserve charitable status is a covert way of attacking their very existence.

Instead, private schools should be helped and encouraged because they have made a massive contribution to the well being of Britain for a considerable period of its history.

If they wish to offer free places or to collaborate with a nearby state school, well and good, but it ought to be a freely made decision, not one forced upon them for their very survival.
