As I am sure that many of you will have guessed, I am a Tory voter, shock and horror there. However I think that Eton Boy Cameron has seriously overstepped the mark in supporting the City [Enter Company Name Here] Acadamies, at the expense of the Grammars. This is despite the fact that City Acadamies are yet to yield a result and Grammar Schools are proven to improve the results of the brightest, more than if they had been in a Comprehensive. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/education/6539721.stm I'm not expecting to change any opinions here, I am sure many are against the Grammar system, but they give a very good Academic education for the most Academic able, regardless of parents economic background. Look at Germany's "Gymnasium" schools, and you can see that both Grammars and "Hauptschule" can work to get good results. Surely if David Cameron wants to improve the gap between Rich and Poor, he should start by making all schools as good as Private Schools (like the one he attended), rather than attacking a system that gets good results regardless of economic background. Before people say that most middle-class students get in to grammars over lower-class students, unfortunatly even at Comprehensives Middle-Class students do better, the answer to this is not Comprehensives for all, but finding a way of encouraging all children from all backgrounds to learn. And the 11plus fail does not mean that that child is a failure in life, it means that their skills do not lie in academic fields, if I failed to get into an Art School I would accept that I was not arty, not a failure in life.
