It is weird that Prime Minister May has kicked off with Grammar schools as her first non-Brexit policy.
Hinkley and Heathrow are there (although both very hard).
Education has been slowly improving and there is already as dispute with the Doctors so winding up teachers is going to double trouble.
And for what? Grammar certainly helps a few but it also causes problems too as the other schools are filled with lower attainment kids. What about streaming in schools as a non-selective way of doing it?
Grammars' are not in the Manifesto from the last election, so the House of Lords will vote it down anyway.
It must be something she has held dear to her for life which she now wants to offer to all; a crusade if you like. Sadly it comes too with a notion of 100% religious schools which I am dead against as these are divisive to the country and we have enough religion as it is, particularly as we will have hard line Muslim schools now allowed - just what the Country needs.
I guess it will be wildly popular mind, so perhaps that is the simple answer after all.
