Private schools must self-finance

MARK Lonergan (Irish Independent, April 29th) takes private schooling to task in most strident terms.
No doubt Mr Lonergan echoes a sentiment which would be favoured by some; however, I support the principle of parental choice and educational pluralism.
As one who wholly endorses the unfairly maligned state education system, warts and all, I cannot subscribe to the view, apparently supported by Mr Lonergan, that the mandatory integration of private schools into the public system would benefit society.
