When I went to a state school, I didn't derail my education, cut class or get high behind the toilet block. My classmates didn't deal drugs out of their lockers or vandalise the desks. Sure, there were a few kids who were wild, but you'll find those in any school -- the private kids just wear fancier uniforms, drive nicer cars and take more expensive drugs.
This week Jean Flynn said private schools should be expelled from the education system. That’s like saying that people who own a Mercedes should pay more in registration. Or they shouldn’t be allowed on the road.
After listening to Sarah Haynes' powerful and thought-provoking graduation speech, I wanted to yell "Go girl!!!" and give her the world's biggest high-five.
