7% of the British students attend independent schools. The figures rises to 14% for sixth form students. That is over 500,000 students who lift the burden on public schools (Telegraph 2017).
Yes it is true that their parents are financially well off hence can afford private education but like you and me they have paid into the tax system. So shouldn't they get a tax rebate?
Perhaps we could use that budget to improve the current system?
