GCs, however, are excellent because they challenge the brightest kids, in ways comprehensives cannot do because of the sheer range of pupils' abilities in classes.
Comps are streamed. (this is about the 1000th time i have had to explain this)

and good comps offer more oppurtunites than my school
c' id argue with that; but there's probably an element of truth in it.

There's nothing saying that there's two unique camps of the thick kids and the clever ones; cos thats bull****. ive seen clever kids and thick kids come both ways; if you recon the GC guys have all the fun; your pretty damn deluded..

So why say sheer range of abilities in each class?

I don't know if that would prove anything in your book but, look at the no. of grammars (I am not sure if they are all state grammars but, the first two certainly are)

Because despite the fact that they are streamed, there is still usually a wider spread of abilities in comp. classes than in GC classes (in my brothers' school there is, anyway)

That's when local Grammars "drain" the comps.

It is accepted by nearly all political groups. It is not meant to be derrogatory, just an observation.

I did really mean that...I meant from difering political stances, people may see the inequitable distribution of funds to be good or bad
