BBC NEWS | Education | Private schools charity threat

Bad for all the Charities and the ‘reputations’ of the good Charities. The commission was widely attacked for failing to recognise that relieving the state of the cost of educating 500,000 children counts as a benefit to everyone who pays tax. But the real enormity is the test itself, which is political prejudice masquerading as objective assessment. "Public benefit", as applied to charities, is meaningless. No charity benefits everyone: women’s charities benefit women, cancer charities those with cancer, and charities for animals don’t benefit people at all. It cannot be an objection to a charity that it benefits only part of the population, for every charity does that. In practice, the question becomes: which parts of the population will be allowed to count as "deserving"?

£3bn in Savings. Why we have all stopped giving to any charities! Or, at least, are now thinking really hard and seriously: twice – about it! A complaint about Suzi Leather’s ‘harassment’ I have just made to UNICEF. Please complain to as many other charities as possible about her attitude to the Independent Schools Sector, when so many parents are doing much more than their bit for their schools and the resource’s of their country!

‘Bullying, Hate & Jealousy’. Politics of Envy.

Private Education is quite unique and separate from all of Suzi Leather’s Charities, due to the vast amounts of public money principally saved and a reliance that it has on the massive input and goodwill of parents (PTFA’s – costly in free time and private money) some, who only by a whisker, can afford any ‘private school fees’ in the first place.

Dame Suzi Leather, chair of the Charity Commission, said: "Charities do a fantastic amount of good and have a unique place in society, which is why they enjoy such high levels of public trust and confidence. They receive the reputational benefits of being charities, as well as tax breaks, so in return it’s right that they demonstrate how they bring real benefit to the public. The majority of the charities we’ve assessed are already providing public benefit in a variety of ways. The other charities are capable of doing so and remain registered, but they must now agree with us in the next twelve months the changes that are needed."

A Disconnection from any Reality

Riding a ‘High Horse’ see, ‘Then As Now’ Heinrich Heine. Called the ‘Quangoes of Religiosity’ and the ‘Nightmare-ish Other Ones’ Recession: 1 in 5 places lost in Independent Schools and those places taken up in the ‘overcrowded’ classrooms of the State Sector. Getting worse: Job Losses Outnumber Job Creations by Almost Three to One



Been to a boarding Prep School, Public School? You are, whether you like it or not, a very (dangerous) ‘Strategic Survival Personality’ Give her the sack, she can cope; there will be no ‘breakdowns’ for her!

Dame Suzi is limbering up to make life difficult for private schools.

Schools charity threat or class war? Mike Baker.

What they should be doing: Tens of thousands of foreign students may have entered the UK to study at bogus colleges. One student, who wishes to remain anonymous, told BBC News how an offer to study for a degree in the UK turned out to be a scam.

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.
