Though i'm not suggesting that Harrow and these top grade private schools are lacking funding, is 26 million a year really that much to run a top not and fully equipped leisure centre, Polo horses and stables (no doubt), Rowing club, a fully equipped library with all the facilities and resources any library around the country can only dream of, maintain the buildings and all the other things that a school like Harrow offers its pupils? I'm not so sure 26million will stretch that far when you look at all facilities and resouces the school offers its pupils, though i'm sure its a thriving business.
After watching that documentary on Harrow I actually felt sorry for the kids being dumped by their posh parents so they can swan off around the world doing their own thing. Makes you wonder why these people have kids in the first place. I can understand how anyone would want the very best for their kids and would pay whatever they could to provide that, but I got the impression that most of the kids were basically being palmed off by their parents as they were an inconvenience to their own life and ambitions. I wonder how many of these kids leave with serious issues that they probably won't ever come to terms with. I think its a poisoned chalice for many of them. Not all of them are royal trained to cushy jobs and the stereotype of the awfully nice but dim, down and out failed sad public school boy, who's desperately tried to please his successful parents and justify their expensive education is not too uncommon.
