YOUR Inside Story on fee-paying schools was certainly thought- provoking but does it represent the thoughts of your readers? Can it really be clear thinking to believe that paying for education justifies "doing the best for the child"?

I don't think so and I'm no modern socialist nor even particularly liberal in my views. I work as a finance director for a public company and my children all go to state schools. They get an education in the widest sense, and preparation for the real world. They mix with both genders, have friends from many different backgrounds and they cope with large class sizes and restricted resources.

I strongly believe that more funding for state education is vital but that, while politicians send their children elsewhere, this is unlikely to occur.
