Deeper sinks?

23rd June 1995 at 01:00
I refer to your leader of June 18. If the most able and motivated parents and children from "working-class and ethnic-minority" areas are helped to get out of their local schools to "middle-class" ones, surely those local "sink schools" become even more sink-like. Is that alright for the rest of the children?

Or are we now into the realms of the deserving and undeserving poor?
