GUEST, Poxicat BS: 800 fine for low school attendance (369* d) RE: BS: 800 fine for low school attendance 09 Mar 10

I'll lay you odds. If you understand how statistics work.

Take the two populations - one the children who were school educated and the other the children who were home educated (or the idiots who bunked off). Now figure out (if you can) the proportion of the first population who are in the top decile of earners and the proportion of the second population.

Now reverse it. Of the first population, what proportion are in the bottom decile of earners, and of the second population waht proportion are in the bottom decile.

Quod erat demonstrandum.

Or if you like, what proportions of the first population and the second commit suicide.

Or what proportion of the first populations and the second are imprisoned at any time, or convicted of any offences at any time (juvenile or adult).

It's a no-brainer. Rubbish finishes up at the tip.
