POSH KIDS WORK JOY
PRIVATE school pupils are more likely to get internships than their state-educated peers.
A study showed a quarter have work placements lined up this summer, compared to less than one in ten state school pupils.
Students who have high-earning parents are also more likely to land internships.
A fifth of pupils from families with £80,000 to £100,000 annual incomes will complete them this year.
In comparison, just one in ten of those with parents earning £15,000 to £30,000 will get the same chance.
Mai Fenton, from UNiDAYS which commissioned the poll, said: “Students from private schools are far more likely to get these opportunities, putting state school students at a disadvantage.” ROAD chiefs finally fixed potholes near Geoff Upson’s New Zealand home after 18 months when he painted 65ft willies on them.
