The Times is writing about a new report authored by Gabriel Heller Sahlgren, who is affiliated to IFN. Sahlgren argues that "sending more children to private school would add billions of pounds to Britain’s economy". Increased competition between independent schools could have raised GDP by £5,800 per person, the report claims.
