​Labour Party “Will Defeat Grammar School Plans”

30th September 2016

Labour Party “Will Defeat Grammar School Plans”

The government’s plans to expand grammar schools in England will “be defeated” by the Labour party, according to speech by Shadow Education Secretary Angela Rayner. 

The statement comes following Prime Minister Teresa May’s intention to lift the ban on selective schools, something she believes has held many pupils back. 

The Labour party will launch a nationwide campaign against Grammar Schools tomorrow (Saturday) and the chair of labour in Mansfield Steve Yemm supports the campaign to oppose the plans

“It would be like turning the clock back to the 1950s, an extremely retrograde move and I can’t imagine that we’d want to have a second class education for many of our kids in Mansfield and move back to that kind of system – we’ll do everything we can to oppose it”
