Save Our Grammars!

Thank you to the Professional Association of Teachers for this week recognising the importance of Grammar Schools!

As the Government forces Northern Ireland, despite the views of parents, to adopt the Comprehensive experiment which has already failed in the rest of Britain, this teachin union has recognised the importance of an education system which allows teacher to stretch children of all abilities without leaving some class members behind.

Time and time again, government figure show that grammar schools have the best value added scores, and Northern Ireland has the best exam results in the country. The decision to abolish Ulster's Grammars has nothing to do with improving the quality of education - it's all about equality; even if that means levelling down rather than levelling up.

It's time for Kent to rise up and defend our education system, before it's too late.
