Sir: As your editorial notes on the proposed merger of Virgin Trains and Stagecoach there is concern, as well ample evidence, that private financing of the railways, albeit with huge public subsidy, is not delivering an adequate or safe service. How is it then that the idea of private companies running some of our schools is supposed to work any better?How long before we find schools closed because experienced teachers have been made redundant to save money and increase profits and there is no one left to teach the pupils? After all its equivalent happened on the railways.
