This much John Tomsett knows about… the inequality bred by the educational divide

August 16, 2016

"I would argue that private education has a profoundly harmful effect upon our country. The rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer and the private school system contributes significantly to our nation’s growing inequality".

​John Tomsett, author of This Much I Know About Love Over Fear…, has uploaded a new blog post in which he transcribes his speech from two years ago at the Oxford Union where he was asked to speak in support of the motion, “This House Believes That Private Schools Do More Harm Than Good”.

Click here to read John’s article and here to take a closer look at his book, This Much I Know About Love Over Fear…, in which he muses upon his approach to school headship.
