Please would someone kindly explain how the 'free' schools are going to be different in the long term to the current grammar/high schools in terms of selective admissions?
Currently those who advocate the setting up of these schools are concerned that parents should have choice. Does this choice extend to all parents? So, for example, if I have arrived from Bangladesh with children who speak no English at all and have had no prior education, would I be permitted to choose one the new free schools in my area and would my children be accepted?
I'd appreciate a frank response.
