James Campbell (in my opinion) talks some sexist shit by poo-pooing the paying of a head of a private girls school wages comparable (almost) to the private sector – cos what’s the point in paying senior educators well (mostly women) and especially for a girls’ school (spoiled brats)? I appreciate his point that private schools are fucking elitist but… it’s a private school…. in the private sector… which is not illegal in Australia. What’s wrong with thinking you’re worth enough as the leader of a private organisation to be paid the same as leaders of other private organisations? Surely, even private elitist schools generate more social capital than big law firms.
