THE STALLED REVOLUTION

It is fifty years since the Department for Education's Circular 10/66 that opened the gates to com­prehensive schools, enabling all their ­pupils access to progressive, intelligent, inclusive education.

For the first time in their ­history, local ­authorities were strongly encouraged to try to address the ­educational needs of all their young ­residents, ­instead of just fast-tracking a selected minority.

Should this year be a ­celebration or have ­selection, privatisation and micro-­management ­succeeded in turning back the clock for the (unequal) ­majority?
