11plus (11+) Grammar School Review in Kent then London??

It is reported that Kent County Council is going to review its 11-plus tests as its figures showed that 10% of offers at grammar schools went to pupils from private schools when fewer than 6% children in Kent are educated in private schools.

One has to ask, ‘What is going on?’ Parents are badgered by the media, politicians and papers everyday that they must do more for their children. Here we have a situation where parents are doing their level best by sending their child for 11plus tuition and then penalised by a Local Borough for exactly doing that and, in all this ‘hurrah’. No one seems to understand that Kent and it’s surrounding Boroughs are all in England and that their is one national education system. Why do politicians want to start segregating when its suitable to gain votes? Why can’t we all work for one common cause that will be benefit this country and it’s people.

In this case, we are looking at young innocent children whose parents happen to work hard, sacrifice their spare time to pay for the tuition fees and then once again only to find their child is to be held back .It is universally appreciated that children have a right to good quality education; it should not matter where they live only that they are capable of benefiting from it.
