Today the Government announced that they were giving £50M to grammar schools to expand provided that they provide fair access to ‘disadvantaged pupils’.
Out of roughly 3000 state secondary schools in England why should the 163 grammar schools get additional funding when ALL school budgets are being squeezed. Why should their 167,000 students get better treatment than the rest?
Once again the Tories are putting ideology above fairness. Teachers, parents and even their own Party are against the expansion of grammar schools.
