The old private school/state school debate in the modern age..


IMG_20160712_185421 I will not be sending my daughter to private school. Not because I can lay claim to any principles, or because on a more practical level I cannot afford to, or because I intend to join a bumfight to get into a good schools catchment area when we return to the UK,  but because the internet has been invented. Any subject that she is struggling with or interested in beyond what is taught in the classroom, she can find out about on the internet. Yes, I will need to supervise her to make sure she uses it safely and doesn’t waste too much time watching cat videos, and I’m going to need to teach her how to evaluate the quality of the information that she finds, but I’m going to have to do these things anyway.
