Abolish state schools in the UK


Watch the kids coming out of a typical state school in the UK. A majority look like scruffs and behave like scruffs. Some look like tarts. Many of them are unemployable.

In the UK, education authorities, both national and local, have ruined state schools.

It's time to take the state school system out of the hands of the state. It's time to close down the local and national education authorities.


In England, the 7 % who go to private schools collected 40.2 % of A grades scored at A level in 2004.

The 7 % who go to private schools collected 45.7 % of the A grades in maths and 60 % of the A grades in modern languages. (Private v state: discipline and disruptive pupils)

In the UK, it is now incredibly difficult for a kid from a poor background to do well.

A survey by the Centre for Economic Performance has shown that social mobility has fallen fast in Britain in recent years.

Britain is among the worst of the developed economies studied, with less mobility for people born in 1970 than for people born in 1958. ( Private v state: discipline and disruptive pupils )

UK state schools are producing an 'army of the unemployable', according to head teachers. ( Schools making 'an army of the unemployable' )

Tens of thousands of teenagers quit education at 16 with no qualifications, head teachers have said. ( Schools making 'an army of the unemployable' )

Employers are accusing state schools of failing in their teaching of basic maths and English. ( Employers say too many school leavers lack basic skills News ... )
