So in some counties there is a lottery system to stop people moving into good school catchment areas, but here the opposite is happening. Expect house prices to rise in Warwickshire then. I'm dismayed that the courts were in favour of Daventry council. :(

Hi - thanks for this. An interesting post.
In the letter referenced in second link, the gentleman says:
The obvious solution is to abandon the failed policy of comprehensive education. Over the last 40 years our educational standards have fallen, illiteracy rates raised and there is a general feeling that our education system is now one of the worst in Europe. Parents are being forced to accept poor education, in an attempt to validate a left wing aspiration for fully comprehensive education.

I'd be interested to know whether this is true, but I don't really know anything about the subject myself.

Can anyone confirm whether:
(a) our education system is worse than others in Europe
(b) the other countries who have overtaken us have done so by adopting or retaining a policy of selective schools from age 11
