I have just met a mum who was angry and cross.
Her child’s teacher had created a feeling of loss.
She would not recommend a place at the nearest grammar school,
The results weren’t good enough and she wouldn’t break the rule.
The Teacher had said, `Don’t put the grammar school first,
With too much pressure your daughter’s head will burst.’
Now last year’s teacher had said: `Go for grammar,
Your daughter’s so bright she won’t need a crammer.’
This then is a dilemma our Mum has to face,
How can she get her daughter her desired school place?
There is no easy answer to a problem of this size
As grammar school entry is every mother’s prize.
