Fair Taxation of Schools and Education Standards Committee — 11 Jan 2023 at 15:19
“Removing the tax advantages of private schools would boost standards in the state sector and raise vital extra funds”.
“charitable status for most private schools is something that should come to an end. The monies saved by Government from these concessions could be used for more teachers”.
“That tax advantage allows the wealthiest in this country, indeed the very wealthiest in the globe, to buy a prestige service that secures their children a permanent positional edge in society at an effective 20% discount. How can this be justified?”
“Everyone should have the opportunity to succeed.”
“the recruitment of new teachers, additional teacher training, and careers advice and work experience for all pupils.”
“When children sit down to eat with friends and teachers in a civilised environment, it cements relationships, helps them to develop social skills and reinforces positive behaviour throughout the day.”
“Teachers and support staff see the difference a healthy school dinner makes.”
“This will not touch the sides when we factor in our own increased energy costs, staffing costs and now having to subsidise school dinners.”
“There shall be a select committee, to be called the Fair Taxation of Schools and Education Standards Committee”.
“It is not clear why private schools, many of whose costs to parents are literally in the stratosphere, should be regarded as charities. To what purpose?”
“Private school fees are VAT-exempt. That tax advantage allows the wealthiest in this country, indeed the very wealthiest in the globe, to buy a prestige service that secures their children a permanent positional edge in society at an effective 20 per cent discount. How can this be justified?”
“Introducing multimodal assessments so that young people’s progress is no longer measured solely through written exams.”
“education is a necessity, not a luxury”.
“antagonism between the independent sector and the state sector”,
