An End to Selection at Eleven: the long battle to make Labour listen (FORUM 1)
Author: CAROL HAYTON
The author is a long-time advocate inside the Labour Party for ending selective education and the 11-plus. She outlines how Labour Party frontbenchers routinely ignore or deflect calls from Party members to stand up for comprehensive education in both word and deed. As UKIP, whose policy is to extend selective education more widely, rises in the polls, it is even more urgent that Labour makes the case for comprehensive success and offers a comprehensive future.
