Grammar Schools should be restored to raise the education of the country. Look at the base system in Bolton in the 60's and 70's. There were 3 types of schools on a base – a secondary modern, a technical school and a grammar. It worked, encouraged social mobility and movement throughout the schools at any age. We scrapped what worked just because secondary moderns didn't work. They should have been improved not our flagship schools scrapped. We are all different and have different skills- so one school for all will not work. 

Why is this idea important?

Many people could gain access to a good academic education irrespective of where they live and educate themselves out of poverty. Comprehensives don't work. So much money has been wasted on education since the 80's. It is false economy and the education system has been dumbed down. I know I have been teaching for long enough in various schools.
