Last quote by Lee Elliot Major

A child from a private prep school would be 10 times as likely as a child on free school meals to get into a grammar, so they are disproportionally serving those from the richest backgrounds at the top and not those from the poorest. I don't think there's much evidence of that, I have to say. If you look at today's grammars, they are highly socially selective, and we would welcome the government's focus on social mobility, but if they want grammars to be the engines of social mobility that is far from the case right now.feedback
