Top private schools should charge foreign students three times more than British pupils so they can ‘bring back the middle classes’, an educational expert has said ahead of a conference this weekend.
Charles Bonas argues it is unfair for international students to benefit from fees that are substantially less than places like Switzerland and the US when they come from countries with lower or non-existence tax.
People should pay higher private school fees because they pay less tax at home? Aren’t we rather getting those concepts of private and tax confused here?
And very confused about markets too: British private schools have a market clearing price….which just is what it is.
Weird, weird, argumewnt.
