Mary Steele’s letter (August 12) was excellent and shows why grammar schools should be returned immediately.
Both my sisters passed the 11 plus and I can assure you we were far from even middle-class in our small four-roomed terraced house and outside loo! Other children in our street went too as grammar schools were a route out of poverty.
Labour and the Conservatives have messed about with education so much. The academies and comprehensives do not work and this leftist council have no idea.
I always will be a strong Labour supporter, but I am with Theresa May on this one. Corbyn and his leftists will never get my vote, like this council.
