So will you make a donation to the State Treasury to cover the cost of your kids' education or
do you expect it to be subsidised by those who choose not to use the state education system?
Seeing as the state education is supported by the taxes of all working individuals (also my
humble self) I see no reason why I should additionaly support it. However, if the quality
of private schools in Poland improves so they give better education than the state ones,
I will certainly and gladly pay for it.
Maybe it wouldn't be such a bad idea to have some tax breaks for those who educate
their children outside the state system. That would seem fair.
b) Even when I did teach full-time I almost never taught kids.
But you taught people, who wanted to become teachers themselves, didn't you?
If there hadn't been kids for them to teach, they wouldn't have come to you for lessons.
It was the government recognising the need for Poles to be able to speak English that brought me to Poland.
Yes, I am aware of the fact that you were the cavalry coming in the answer to Polish
government's desperate cry for help; however, it wasn't the government, but the people
themselves who knew that it was necessary for them to be able to speak English.
Polish government might have imported the teachers of Mongolian, but if there hadn't been
people willing to learn Mongolian, those teachers would have been useless.
Good for you. But it's not purely altruistic, is it? Will you be transferring your help when your
relatives no longer need it?
No, I won't. That would be irrational. I think I see your point, but the VAT rise will hit all
the families with children, including those who need state assistance. Some families don't
need the lower rates, but many will suffer because of raising them.

All it requires is a bit of historical knowledge and a bit of viciousness ;)
Hey - I know I'm exaggerating, but tax rises pi*s me off, especially if they hit poorest families the most.
