    No, i absolutely agree with giving quality education for free and seeing as though the comps in this country suck then grammars are needed. I've been to both types of school and would definately agree that you are given more chances in a grammar school because people there want to work.

    Define successful. You have to take into account that the top 25%, (sometimes even smaller) go to them. If you break down the results there is very little differences between comps and GS's.
    The idea that they are successful is a very common and understandable misconception.

    Er... a Grammar school is always a state-school. "Selective schools" often referred to as Grammars, are private schools

    Well I am certain that the grammar I go to is very successful as are others around my area...apparently the percentage is very low as well...some teacher was saying below 10% the other day yet I fail to believe him

    I know a grammar is a state school but I have noticed there has been some confusion as to whether a private school with the word *grammar* in its name is a grammar school... if you get my drift?

    No, the comps are very good too...not as good but, the grammars are certainly not a drain...my school is several million in debt I believe...if anything, they are under funded!

    Anyway, you would never be able to abolish grammars round my area because it is Tory stronghold...for the local council elections in the constituency I live, there was not even a labour candidate!

    well I am not sure if it is several million but at least a million...I don't think they managed resources poorly...they just refuse to give up the teachers and places for students
