You have brought up a whole shed-full of points there.
I agree with just about all you say.
While I think state education is a good thing in principle. It does not seem to be managed with excellence.
State education in the UK sometimes gives the impression that its main purpose is to benefit teachers. Other times to benefit NGO inspectors.
What in principal is wrong with schools setting admission standards? Why have we just about abandoned the grammer school?
Is there a good reason to have a government target of 50% of pupils going to university?
