Today we are proud to announce Labour's major campaign, 'Education not Segregation', opposing the Tories' plans to open new grammar schools.
The Tories would segregate our children by opening new grammar schools: a privileged education for a few, a second class education for the rest. And they are extending their plans into higher education, by hiking student fees and scrapping student grants, cutting opportunities for the many.
The Tories' education policies are failing children and parents. While they obsess about school structures and new grammar schools, school budgets are falling, there are chronic teacher shortages and not enough good school places.
A good education should not be a privilege - it is every child's right. Labour will ensure that all children receive the high-quality education they deserve.
