Time to stop digging

At the fear of not wishing to protract the grammar school issue, I stand by my previously stated comment. Having a grammar school system does indeed increase parental choice - having just one system (unless you pay), decreases it. Yes, the schools choose the pupils most suited to their particular school, but that's no bad thing. And anyway, if grammar schools are so bad, why do parents in the areas where they do exist try everything possible to get their children a place.

And if that doesn't satisfy you, watch this instead (c/o YouTube) in which Jordan's son, Harvey, sums up my point more succinctly.

(...and sorry for the lack of blog entries - you just can't get the staff these days)
