Lord Adonis, the former Minister of State for Education, claims that a lot of private schools forget about charity. He is sure that state education must be supported by the independent sector. Charity must become a moral duty for the trustees of private sector. It was Lord Adonis who created the academies program with new semi-independent schools financed by the state. These schools decide on their curriculum, salaries and working conditions on their own. A lot of such schools have tax benefits, as they are charities. However, their public benefit usually comes to nothing more than their own students. Lord Adonis supposes that these educational charities should do much more than they are demonstrating at present. They could help other less successful educational establishments.
