The eternal debate about the value of private schools. We are at that junction and need to decide whether to send the kids to private schools. I'm in two frames of mind: 1). Yeah why not. We'll do anything for our kids, and wouldn't blink an eyelid to send them to the top private schools. This includes spending $30k per year per kid for 10 years (2 kids);... Or... 2). Invest the cash (say in a index tracker EFT) that would have been spent on the private schooling, and give it to them as a present when they graduate from uni. I reckon this would add up to about $500k per kid by that time. Thoughts anyone?
