The Belfast Telegraph persists in talking up the “rebel” grammar schools led by Inst Chairman, Sir Kenneth Bloomfield.
Careful fact checking reveals a different story. Perhaps the reporter has relied upon anecdote rather than evidence for her story. Should there be any doubt parents are advised to contact grammar schools directly about their position. Ask about proposed changes to the school’s admission criteria or other changes approved by the Board of Governors.
Of more practical concern parents should ask their primary school principal how their child is being prepared for numeracy and literacy teaching next year and beyond.
