Labour backs abolishing private schools in conference vote

  • British Labour MP John Mc Donnell speaks during the party's annual conference in Brighton on Monday

Even the likes of Cardiff and Aberdeen take around 15 per cent of their students from private school.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn spent some years of his education at a private school, and several members of his team of senior lawmakers sent their children to fee-paying schools.

At its annual conference in the English seaside resort of Brighton, the Labour Party passed a motion supported by leftist groups to abolish private schools and integrate them into the state sector to help dismantle "the privilege of a tiny".

If elected, Labour will also get rid of private schools' charitable status and redistribute their assets.

Private schools are obviously sad. The Chief executive of the Independent Schools Council said it would be an attack on the rights of parents.

Why Trump Ended Press Briefings
Grisham took over, she said she'd be open to reinstating press briefings but said it's "up to the president". Grisham went on to complain to Fox & Friends that the press "weren't being good to his [Trump's] people".

Former deputy chairman of the Conservatives Lord Ashcroft pointed out that as a result of Labour's to stop parental choice, private schools will "just pop up in Ireland or elsewhere".

He added, "It seems unbelievable to me that the Labour Party should now be setting out to abolish a load of schools". My children don't go to private schools.

Labour's conference has been overshadowed by rows over the party's stance on Britain's departure from the European Union, with leader Jeremy Corbyn being challenged over his hope to remain neutral before any new election. "Let's end these grotesque levels of inequality within our educational system". The BBC's education and family correspondent Sean Coughlan wrote: "Why not other forms of non-state education - whether it's nurseries, private tutors, professional training, universities or driving schools for that matter?"

While in theory no previous British government can bind the next, even if a successive Conservative government chose to reestablish private schools, those institutions would be without the assets, land, and other endowments that enabled them to be independent in the first place.
