Selecting children or rejecting children is a disgrace. Telling a child he/she isnít good, smart enough. Itís lazy teachers looking for the easy way out. Teach the best and to hell with the rest. No one can make a case for grammar schools.
I actually passed and attended a Grammar school, 7 years and have a good standard of education under my belt. But as a parent I see how itís just taking the easy way out as a society.

If ever there was a case for scrapping Grammar Schools!

Schools are going to close.
They won't be grammar schools.
They will be secondary schools .
Why? Because as the previous poster said grammar schools are over subscribed..
Why ? Well because they are grammar schools.
You only have to look at the mess this year in several areas where grammar schools were given permission to temporarily increase there year 8 intake due to increased demand while secondary schools in the same area who were also over subscribed were not.
Also within these areas there are other schools with space who were just ignored.

Grammar school teachers don't have easy.
Anything but.

Some children fail the test and it's water of a ducks back.
Other dont and it sticks with him for a long while.
It may not define you but being labelled a failure at 10 or 11 can take a while to get over.
