  1. Basic income is the same for all living citizens regardless of age. It is sufficient to cover all pupil costs through primary, secondary and tertiary education.
  2. Primary and Secondary attendance is mandatory, except where current recognized exceptions apply. All children of school age will be allocated a place at an agreed local school, for which payment will be made from the pupil's basic income.
  3. Schools and Academy Trusts are designated public utilities as far as dividend payments are concerned.
  4. The provision of sufficient school places is a matter for local authorities, which may subcontract to Academy Trusts as much as they like.
