Local school network role: 
I'm a Kent mum and part of the Kent Education Network a community group which campaigns against academic selection in our county. I don't think it's fair that children are divided by the eleven-plus exam, with 'fail' children unable to apply for places in highly rated local schools. I believe children of all abilities can be challenged academically in good mixed ability schools, and this means grammar schools are unnecessary. We should value all children's potential and not attempt to define academic winners and losers at age eleven.
