It seems to me we have an easy tendency to draw broad and wide-ranging conclusions from damning specifics. This story is not an example of hypocrisy on the part of an ex-Education Minister, but rather is about a mother who has the wherewithal to look out for the best interests of her child.
Any of us with the resources to do so would do the same. Our children only have one shout at life. What we do, we do for them.
