Wonderful stuff. I always thought they were called “public” to differentiate them from the “private” (ie, at home) education that noble sons had previously had; is that a miff?

I’m not sure, really, and I think it’s a distraction, anyway; forget I raised it! I’ve never heard any of this stuff before, and I suspect it would be an eye-opener for many panellists/viewers. It is pretty amazing ...

As a note to the main course, do we know how much taxpayers’ money private schools in the UK receive annually these days, if any, through their charitable status fiddle?

I wonder why the word "education" is ised three times in the topic's heading? To me it echoes Lenin's insipid slogan: "Learning, learning and learning!" which a facetious English friend of mine used to pronounce as "Lenin, Lenin and Lenin!"
