State VS Private Provision:
Having Private provision creates inequality. As families who can afford to send
their children to private schools, create a barrier for the parents who cant.
As the families who can afford to private tuition, they are more likely to have
access to networks and connections. This will therefore allow them to get jobs
and work experience in the future.
By having Private provision you can allow your child to be influenced by certain
norms and values and a certain standard of life. This maybe to avoid certain
people within society.
