Ανθούν Παρά την Ύφεση

Asian and black families are the most likely to hire private tutors, with 42 per cent of Asian children and 38 per cent of black children getting extra help, compared to just 20 per cent of white families. And of today’s figures, 25 per cent of tutored children are from affluent families, while 18 per cent come from poorer backgrounds. Yesterday, educational charities warned the trend could widen the educational gap between the ‘haves and have-nots’ with poorer parents unable to afford private tuition. Sir Peter Lampl, chairman of the Sutton Trust, said: ‘Private tuition appears to be booming despite the recession. While it is natural that parents should want to do the best for their children, it does give well off families an advantage, particularly when money to help children from poorer homes is being cut.’(source MailOnline)
