Grammar schools being forced to take on an artificially higher proportion of children from disadvantaged backgrounds is a stupid idea and it’s not hard to see why when you think about it.

As a first generation immigrant, who attended both comprehensive and grammar schools, I wholly believe in meritocracy.

But this proposed change in policy, backed by Secretary of State for Education Justine Greening, isn’t really about that.
