We have all heard the many suggestions from Politicians, journalists, business leaders etc. on what cuts should be implemented in the forthcoming budget, but there is one obvious cut which a lot of these elites have failed to mention and that is; the Irish States financial support given to Private secondary schools. If financial support was removed it would be supported by a majority of the population, but these cuts are not being suggested because the Elites of this country are benefiting from it. We all know that a majority of the top graduates in medicine and Law are coming from these private schools and the Irish Taxpayer is subsidising there education. This removal of State financial support should be on the top of any list of budgetary cuts.
