Graham Brady: Let technical and vocational schools fulfil their potential by allowing them to select

Allowing technical schools to select pupils will give children “of every kind a better chance of ending up in the school that is right for them”, says Sir Graham Brady MP in Conservative Home, 16 August 2018.

Sir Graham, who is the Deputy Chairman of the Centre for Policy Studies, was responding to Toby Young’s report ‘Technically Gifted’ which set out how children are being failed a system which treats technical schools as “dumping grounds” for less academic children instead of a legitimate educational pathway for any child who excels at vocational work.
