Nigel Farage has given the first indication of UKIP education policy: A grammar school in every town.
This is a failed, backward and divisive policy.
Even OFSTED head Michael Wilshaw recognises that grammar schools are about social segregation, not about social mobility.
They are according to the OFSTED head “stuffed with middle class children”. They might do well with those children but according to Sir Michael “everyone else does badly”. That is why we need a good local school for every child.
