Gram­mar schools aren’t the prob­lem

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - OPINION -

IN A re­cent let­ter Martin Frey told us how bril­liant Hack­ney schools were and how much bet­ter they were than Kent schools. The latest league ta­bles paint a to­tally dif­fer­ent pic­ture. In fact Hack­ney schools are among the worst schools in the coun­try. In the latest league ta­bles they had the 10th worst re­sults in the coun­try. Only nine au­thor­i­ties did a worse job of ed­u­cat­ing their chil­dren. The fact is that gram­mar schools dom­i­nated the top of the ta­bles with 81 of the top 100 schools be­ing gram­mar schools. It is quite clear that gram­mar schools do a bet­ter job of ed­u­cat­ing our chil­dren. Its about time peo­ple like Martin Frey stopped at­tack­ing gram­mar schools but started putting for­ward so­lu­tions for­ward to im­prove poorer schools.
