And now grammar schools are back!

It may be wondered if teachers ever know where they are going, one year to the next.

Now we learn that Grammar Schools are again to be encouraged.

But schools must be more than academies.

They are, individually and together, reflections of how we want society to be.

Do we want schooling stratified and top down, socially and academically.

Holistically egalitarian, or randomly egalitarian, with no measure of quality.

From the way the country is today, it is a fight between the first and last.
