Another example of how UKIP and the Tory party are 'rapidly moving us into the 1950's', with UKIP's manifesto pledge to open more Grammar Schools and Tory Councils in Kent and Berkshire planning to open two new satellite grammar schools.
Theresa May in her Maidenhead constituency and Michael Fallon in Sevenoaks are both supporting these plans. The 'Indy' is reporting that researchers at the Institute of Education and Manchester University have analysed 7700 people, whose lives have been followed since 1970 by the British Cohort Study.
They found that Grammar schools are no more successful than Comprehensives at getting pupils into elite Universities. Yet UKIP/Tories continue to believe that by measuring someone's supposed IQ at 11 year's old should determine a child's future. Many children at the time of the Exam are still only 10, whilst others are approaching 12, how can this be fair. Still it is what these two parties stand for.
