For better or worse, modern grammars have moved on
While I agree with Adrian Elliott that there should not be a total abolition of the comprehensive system, I think parents should be able to have selective grammar schools in their area if they want them.
He also makes a number of dubious claims. His argument that the "countries said to have the greatest social mobility, the Scandinavian nations and Canada, are all fully comprehensive", is undermined by the use of the independent "free schools" in Sweden and the existence of traditional private schools, like ours, in Canada.
