I am looking forward to attending the debate tonight, promoted by the Spectator, at the Royal Geographical Society between 6.45 and 8.30.
"Grammar Schools are the best."
Speakers for the motion include: R. Hon David Davis MP, Stephen Pollard, Gragam Brady MP.
Speakers against the motion: Rt Hon Charles Clarke MP, Simon Jenkins, Polly Toynbee.
The event is chaired by Andrew Neil.
Every parents wants to feel that they have some choice in teh schools that their children will attend. The ability to earn a place in a Grammar School is not right - but a priviledge which a child earns by being bright and hard working.
