Mccartney's Guilt Over Sending Children To Private School

SIR PAUL MCCARTNEY's daughter STELLA feels guilty about sending her children to a "posh" private school - because she's convinced her dad's decision to enrol her in a "normal" facility was "the best thing" he could have done for her.
The Beatles legend sent the fashion designer to a local government-run institute because he wanted to make sure she remained grounded despite his superstar status.
Stella previously dubbed her father a "tight b**tard" for the decision, but now credits the musician for making the right choice.
The designer, who is currently expecting her fourth child, has decided to send her kids to an expensive private school, but she fears it will have a negative impact on them.
She tells Britain's Daily Mail, "If at any stage it looks like they're becoming total jerks and saying 'hello mummy' in posh voices, instead of running in and just being their awful selves, then you have to knock it on the head (stop it). It's one of my biggest internal struggles - the whole schooling system in London and the fact that my kids are going to a posh school. It freaks me out...
"Going to the normal local comprehensive (school) was one of the best things that could have happened to me. You didn't boast about stuff otherwise you'd get beaten up. It was healthy to see how most people in the world live. That's why I freak out that my kids are doing that."
