I was rather surprised to see the above picture on [the Adam Smith Institute blog](http://www.adamsmith.org/blog/index.php/blog/private_schools_and_public_benefit/)… It's my old school, [Dollar Academy](http://dollaracademy.org/intro.shtml). The fact that the kid on the left looks much like I did back then doesn't help. Ironically, the post is about the status of English private schools. And Dollar is very much in Scotland.
