"David Cameron is effectively giving the green light to more grammar schools in areas such as Buckinghamshire."But if a local education authority want to operate a selective system, shouldn't it be free to do so? That was certainly the Liberal position back in the 1970s when the selective vs comprehensive debate was at its height,
And, as a matter of interest, how strongly do modern Liberal Democrats campaign against selection in the areas where it still operates?
