Charity Status Independent Schools. Consultation on Draft Supplementary Guidance on Public Benefit and the Advancement of Education.


School – PTA’s and PTFA’s.


The Barmy Army


IN THE (Governments) CHARITY COMMISSION’S Draft Supplementary Guidance on `Public Benefit and Fee-charging’, the Commission come back to an issue trailed in their general guidance: can a charity opt out of the charitable sector if the charity trustees `consider their responsibilities to meet the public benefit requirement … too demanding’? This picks up on a theme appearing fairly regularly in media, usually on letters pages or blogs, where exasperated parents, learning that the total value of the tax benefits enjoyed by charitable independent schools is less than £250 per pupil per year, wonder why schools don’t just save themselves a lot of grief and regulatory intervention by terminating their charitable status and operating outside the charitable sector?


ICS and Others – give the blood suckers in/of the Charity Commission the ‘cold shoulder’ on behalf of the Independent School Parent. Independent School Parents save the UK Taxpayer £20bn per annum. The State Education System could not cope if they had to take on all Independent School pupils! ‘Consultation on Draft Supplementary Guidance on Public Benefit and Fee-charging’. Dame Suzi Leather ‘Quango Queen’


No wonder these people seem to live on a different planet. They don’t spend half their spare time trying to raise money in PTFA’s or PTA’s for Independent Schools, or State Schools, trying to make up for the Government’s (incompetent and appalling) inadequacies!


Why have we been rated in England as having the ‘Worst Care’ – Child Welfare of Children in the 27 Industrialised Nations of the World; this is something you could really be concentrating on – Dame Suzi! Is this true? And if it is? Why do you play about with unbelievable total crap like this and at all our expense, like: robbing Peter to pay Paul, except that you ‘do it with the children’s education money’. Peter and Paul, I am sure: were much more grown up!

My First family, second marriage, bringing up my 18-year-old twins, boy, and girl. I am a third generation Humanist, who has some old handwritten information and notes; collected over many years. Someone may find the articles interesting, or helpful. They could bring back a little ‘reality’, after being ‘shocked’ and ‘brainwashed’, by some malicious group, or institution (REBT Therapy). People should know better, than to do this, to our very young, and the ‘obviously’ vulnerable! Go to easily accessible, non-superstitious knowledge that is not charlatanism! The blog has given me an incentive to order my thoughts, learn, and read up again, after a few non-thinking years of (very silly) imagination and passion. Why not, get your own key to a ‘door’, customise it to suit you, and it can be, all of your very own! Don’t believe, or be led by someone else’s; inherited, stupid, and a very likely (past, and not of today’s) ‘totally preposterous reality’s’. Only some interest in the ‘really big questions’, keeps life above the level of a farce, and very little else! KEEP THINKING! Some of the posts may need some correcting. Interests: REBT Counselling, Atheism, Secularism, Humanism, Psychology, Reading, Popular Science, School Ethos, Philosophy, History, Family, Parenting, Psychology, Horse Riding, Sailing, Rescue Boat Driver, Skiing (Teppichswinger), TV Documentaries, Motorbike Cross Country Riding, Volunteer Sports Stewarding, Writing, Primitive Man, Pre-history, Social Anthropology, British Humanist Association, BHA, Meaning of Life, The Big Questions, Where am I, What am I, Why am I, Hippie Love, Knowledge, Education, Globalisation. Favorite quote: “The world belongs to those who, at least to some degree, have figured it out.” Carl Sagan, ‘The Demon Haunted World’, ‘Contact’, and other famous books DVD ‘Cosmos’. The warning of another and horrendous, “Age of Superstition”. “Isn’t there something deeply absurd in the presumption that children ought to inherit beliefs from their parents. It can be deeply damaging, even lethally divisive. A ‘them’, with an ‘against us’, mentality” – Professor Richard Dawkins. “The will to believe is stronger than mere reason in the vast majority of people” – Dr J.Brown, Army Psychologist of the 1960′s. Humans will believe in almost anything, in fact, they seek it! Why? “98% of us, trained to be just good consumers, let’s train our children to be the 2% who have their very own creativity and discernment”; quote by a famous surreal artist. “The lack of reason brings forth monsters”. “Global interconnectedness is lethal against mass religion, nationalism, racism, and other destructive memeplexes. Let us connect everybody they hate it in restrictive regimes”; from the ‘meme learning group’, Richard Brodie’s book, ‘Virus Of The Mind’ (Richard Brodie a designer for ‘Microsoft Word’). Following on, J.Bronowski, and ‘The Ascent Of Man’ TV series, and a book with the last DVD in this series, ‘The Long Childhood’ being especially revealing. ‘Prehistory’ and the ‘Making of the Human Mind’ by Colin Renfrew, with P.Wilson’s, ‘The Domestication of the Human Species’, and Nigel Spivey’s, TV series and book, ‘How Art Made The World’, offers some further explanations.
