It’s been not far with the alleged trend of elite education in luxury boarding schools. For even more opinions, read materials from Terry Bowden . The speech is a lot lately by elite boarding schools. Almost there is the impression, as if there were only elite boarding schools. A Bavarian boarding school, opened an \”approved\” branch in addition to their State-approved high school include, only even candidates without a grammar school recommendation and multiple repeatant that normally would have to leave the gymnasium, repeated the term \”Elite boarding school\” on its Web site with a such intrusiveness, that inevitably allergic reactions is set when reading. Another embarrassing example delivered a special boarding school for ADHD children and Dyslexic, that jump also tried on the elite train by it presented its gehandikapten eleven as \”prevented elite\”. And not enough of the embarrassments: several institutions of the upper price category in Northern Germany came only recently in the headlines of tabloids, because youth offices problematic children cost reasons like in such luxury boarding place put in the much more expensive homes of public education.

This practice seems more recently even in the supposedly especially \”elitist\” English boarding schools – despite significant risks – to spread. This confirms the assumption that at the top as on the bottom of the society well same education deficits are – \”teenage runaway\” – and that demand is not so large to elite education in luxury boarding schools in reality, as this PR journalists in the media like to claim. For a more post-crisis interest of status-oriented parents recent pronouncements from Germany’s most elite boarding school can be considered unmistakable indication Schloss Salem, where one is although markedly optimistic in the face of a general trend to the private school, but at the same time it must admit that almost a third of the Salem clientele is no longer able, to pay the full price of boarding school.
