Readers’ comments: Money’s the least of the problems


In response to Chris McGovern: £125,000 a year for cleaning toilets? Nice work if you can get it,

The problems with education go far deeper than the amount of money that is spent on it. Teaching children can be done with the most basic and inexpensive equipment and a good teacher. However, many, if not most of our teachers are themselves badly educated and are therefore unable to pass on the necessary skills to their pupils. It was not so in my time at school. Very often we had to share text books, sat in lines facing the teacher and used outside loos. I had some wonderful teachers when I was at a state run grammar school, many of whom were older, single women but they knew their subjects inside and out. As standards in schools slip further each year so does the education of those expected to teach succeeding generations and so it goes on.

It’s the same old story, peddled by the left; the system is failing (as it would, with the left’s crackpot ideas) so throw more and more money at it. Just the same with the NHS, that sacred and sclerotic old cow.

I bet that Headteacher employs a cleaner for her own home. She can certainly afford one on £125,000 a year.
