Hi Luschen,. I am going to have an IELTS exam next week. Could you revise my IELTS essay? Thank you very much.
Topic: Families who send their children to private schools should not be required to pay taxes that support the state education system.
To what extent do you agree or disagree with this statement?
Some people believe that parents of children who attend privately-funded schools don’t need to contribute state schools through taxes. Personally, I completely disagree with this view.
On the one hand, tax-free for families who send their offsprings to independent schools seems to be out of question owning to three main underlying explanations . Firstly, to solve the complexity of accurate calculation of the amount of tax for these families, staffs must improve current management system considerably and carry out continuous assessments, which leads to a tremendous waste of time and money. Another point is that we pay a certain amount of tax for public services such as public medicines fees, environmental sanitation fees,… that we may not use. It is pressing that if affluent families were given a tax discount or an exemption from taxes, for putting their children into non-government schools, we might have situation where poorer people pay higher public taxes than the rich.
On the other hand, tax liabitity should be fulfilled by each citizen, which brings significant effects on all members of society. It is common knowledge that all students are provided with a high-quality public education system including technological facilities and extra-curricular activities, which has been made with the money from taxes contributions. In other words, the principle of educational equality among state and private schools would be guaranteed in the long run, which results in a well-educated workforce and in turn more productive and prosperous nation. For example, according to Ministry of Education and Training, with public investments for education, Ha Noi universities supported by government has tailored traditional teaching styles by applying modern information technologies such as computers, powper point projectors,… to enhance trasmission of knowledge as well as education quality in classes until 2025.
In conclusion, I do not believe that any financial concessions should be made for people who choose private education.
