Your previous contributors have pointed out some very good reasons for restoring the grammar schools. In addition, the 2005(?) Charities Act should be repealed or amended so that it no longer "penalises" the (apparent) privilaged status of the public schools. 

Why is this idea important?

The Grammar Schools have a long history of producing dynamic British contributors. For people who do not "make it" through the 11-plus there have always been safety nets – Ruskin College for instance. People who wish to make the effort to send their children to Public Schools should be allowed to do so – it is their personal choice and right. Many P.S's also have a long history of Bursaries and Scholarships which should be preserved.

I have never believed that a Secondary Modern is the "dead end" that Labour would have us believe it is!!
