It transpires one of the firms running these classes, being supported from public funds, went to school with Cameron and is a pal of Gove.
"A venture run by a contemporary of David Cameron at Eton and friend of the Education Secretary Michael Gove has been awarded a key government contract to provide courses on parenting.
Ministers will announce plans this week to issue £100 vouchers, distributed through Boots, for parents to redeem up to 10 two-hour sessions on how to bring up their children.
The £5m pilot scheme will initially be launched in three areas and, if successful, will be rolled out nationwide at a cost of hundreds of millions of pounds. "
