Australian parents are increasingly choosing to spend more money on their children’s education.

Christopher Bounds‘s insight:

I love it! A very naughty and tongue in cheek article from Catherine Scott that points out what we all should know: that we can’t believe that private schools provide a better education, just a different education. In my experience, it’s not the academic standards that cause parents to send their children to independent schools (and I leave systemic schools out of this because they are in a different category). The children come to these schools for the range of co-educational opportunities, the philosophy of the school (which is hopefully lived out!) and because they want their children to be like the school’s students who they see down the street. And that, in some ways, is as it should be.
