Back at the end of April I was astonished that Steve Doszpot was pushing for the Government to take over the provision of disabilities in private schools.
I went so far as to label it the most pointless whinge in history and this morning it appears I was wrong.
I still maintain that for the long term health of our nation the quality of the public system should be the sole focus of Government.
But yesterday evening Steve was cock a hoop that the non-government school sector had decided it wanted the pots of money even at the expense of their independence.
This morning Andrew Barr is running up the white flag to some extent, promising to share the outcomes of the review and pointing out how much money’s being spent already on upgrading the private facilities.
