Tories aren't looking at real problems
Michael Gove's statistics on the poorest pupils gaining places at Oxbridge are fallacious, because they fail to take into consideration the significant proportion of talented youngsters who attend independent schools with the help of bursaries and scholarships, who then go on to the top universities.
Schools like the Manchester Grammar School and Bancroft's have a long history of encouraging the social mobility that both major parties claim to subscribe to, yet they choose to ignore this contribution. If only children's needs came before political dogma.
