However, this does not entitle him to belittle charitable organisations such as Outward Bound which operate from a different - and many would say preferable - set of values.
For 50 years the Outward Bound Trust, working with senior educationists, has designedadventure courses and expeditions tailored with great care to meet the needs of schools and many of their most de-motivated pupils.
Currently there is exciting and innovative work in progress in Britain and across the world involving partnership between Outward Bound and schools.
Indeed it was Outward Bound in the United States which pioneered the concept of "expeditionary learning" in schools.
