lotteries for school places

Lotteries, an unfair system, or the least unfair? Most school admissions schemes are lotteries, just not explicitly so.


  1. Not a lottery, you just pay alot for a house near to other parents who care about their childrens education.

  2. If only it was that simple! My way, there is a lottery effect - the boundaries change vastly year to year, based on rumours of what is going on in distant schools, causeng ripples of parental panic.
