Theresa May outlined a package of education reforms in her aim to ensure that ‘every child gets a chance to go to a good school’. This includes relaxing the restrictions on new or expanding selective schools and in some cases allow existing non-selective schools to become selective.
"The truth is that we already have selection in our school system - and it's selection by house price, selection by wealth. That is simply unfair.” she said
Both Sir Michael Wilshaw (Ofsted Chief Inspector) and General Secretary of the ATL (Association of Teachers and Lecturers), Dr. Mary Bousted, have expressed their disapproval that new grammar schools could be created.
