I.Prepare yourself to read the following dialogue and answer some questions about it. .
Interviewer： Do you think the public schools are a good thing or a bad thing， Mr. Martin？
Mr. Martin， I think it's a very much a bad thing. You see， I totally disagree with the idea that anyone should be about to buy their children a better education than another. The thing is the public schools help to keep the idea of a ruling elite alive and work against social change. I think I would like to see all private schools absorbed into the state education system and every child allowed the chance of the same education. There is a very strong argument that the pressure of those parents whose children at present go to public schools would soon bring about a great improvement in the state system.
Interviewer： Mrs. Jones， do you agree with Mr. Martin？
Mrs. Jones： No， I don't. I think public schools are a good thing. You see， if we could afford it ， my husband and I would send our sons to a public school when they reach secondary school age. I think public schools finish them off， burn them into gentlemen， and give them a good start in life. The good thing about public schools is that those who go to a public school can mix with other children who come from good backgrounds. The only thing I can think of against them is that only very few public schools are co-educational. It’s a shame， isn't it？ I mean， mixing with both sexes from a very early age is a good thing， particularly when boys don’t have a sister.
