Caricatures and comprehensives

I was astonished to read the suggestion that Fiona Millar and people who share her views "characterise existing grammar schools and those who teach in them as evil" (On the naughty step, 6 April). As chair of our non-party organisation, Fiona shares our view that it is selection at age 11 that is wrong, and that grammars and their teachers would still have a valuable role to play if selection were ended and these schools became comprehensive.
