Independent schools a money saver

Editor: During a Langley forum on education it was said that governments (i.e taxpayers) funnel too much money into private and independent schools.

I have been privileged to serve as treasurer in two of these independent schools and here are the facts about these schools:

Independent schools save the government 50 per cent of operating costs and 100 per cent of building capital costs.

It sometimes appears that folks who make allegations such as the one above are unwilling to look at the facts.

The cost savings by these independent schools is done without a lot of fanfare but should not go unnoticed by the taxpayer.
