I heard many years ago that somebody once said that the main or only benefit of a public school education was that you would be able to spell 'separate' correctly when you left. I thought that it was Robert Robinson who said it. But Robert Robinson did not go to a public school. That doesn't mean that he could not have said it, but it leaves room for doubt. I have been unable to find anything on the internet to support the quote or, if anyone has said it, the author. Does anyone on The Answerbank know more?

Not sure, I'll ask the family.
The real advantage of a public school education is that it gives you confidence that surpasses your abilities.
You've only to look at our PM to see the truth of that.
yeah I thought the advantage of a PSE was
you can lie and lie and lie and lie and...

BUT prison have PS boys but are not full of them and so I reluctantly have to admit nay conclude that.... young liars occur elsewhere

I dont think the quote is worth the effort

we were told ( English master Robin Atthill who got an obit in the times) - that once you remember separate comes from the same word as parade,
you will never now mis-spell it
