We Must Ban Private Schools. Ash Sarkar Meets Richard Beard. Downstream

Britain is unique in the way that public schools (that’s private schools to anyone outside of Britain) have a stranglehold on the establishment. Alumni of these schools are massively overrepresented in the upper echelons of society – so is it any wonder that the media, the judicial system and the political class treat normal people with contempt?

To explore the connections between power and the institutions that consolidate it in the hands of the few, Ash is joined by Richard Beard, author of ‘Sad Little Men: Private Schools and the Ruin of England’.
