Should the UK build new grammar schools?

The PM is said to be a big fan of selective schools, having sent her daughters to one.

The Education Secretary has said he could lift the 24-year ban on establishing new grammar schools.

Do you think that's a good idea?

Definitely not. I went to a grammar school from a state school. The grammar school was populated by many kids from private schools who had a real advantage & were overtly favoured by the teachers

Not a good idea at all. Selection at eleven is an arbitrary barrier and allows those who can afford extra tuition (ie the more wealthy) to pay for it. Once again creating another barrier to success for the poor.

We need to change the current education system.It's not fit for purpose.We then need to raise standards in the schools we already have.We also need more special schools.

what Phil from Liverpool says is maybe true. You can improve schools, but the kids there might be a problem holding others back. Edinburgh had different council areas. Good one and bad one. Bad one demolished and the punters moved to the good one. Result, good one plummeted.

As a grammar school alum, I'd say no. There shd never be 'better' state schools. If you accept that, you're writing off a lot of kids.

Personally I think Schools should be secular Religion has no place there. Faith Schools should not exist. In the UK
In reply to @JeremyVineOn5
Absolutely not - it will just end up creating greater disparities and divide families and write off so many vulnerable children at age 11.
