Bad influence of Tony Zoffis

3rd February 2006 at 00:00
* What toe-curling nonsense Anthony Seldon is peddling! For starters, independence, as such, should not be confused with the independent sector.

I feel that he should re-work his article filling in the crucial gaps relating to fees, privileges, endowments and charitable status of the small, high status independent sector, before he tries to lecture the state system from his comfortable and privileged chair at Wellington college.
