Don’t Collectivise the Schools

Any history student kbows all about the collectivisation of the kulaks in 1930s USSR, when independent peasant farmers, suspected of being closet capitalists, were forced to become part of collective farms.
I have just listened to Alan Bennet argue for merging of private and state schools. Revolutionary that I am, I feel reluctant to kick the old man in the guts, but he is arguing for exactly the forced collectivisation that made soviet agriculture a disaster for the whole lifetime of the Soviet empire.
