Thought of the week: The beginning of Advent

Letter: Education must not be a rat race

Letter: Education must not be a rat race

Our local Tory councillor who upholds the creation of more grammar schools does well to seek the best for academically gifted children but fails to say this needs holding in proportion to equal quality provision for all other young people.
