AIBU in letting you know?
They want feed back from parents, teachers, head teachers and others on subjects like: expanding Grammar schools, making Independent schools and Universities be more involved in state schools, and whether to loosen the rule that 50% of places at new Faith schools have to be for everyone regardless of faith.
I thought MNers have strong opinions on such issues. (I have to say my MP told me about this consultation, which I hadn't heard about before.)

It is a very biased consultation with questions such as "How should we support existing grammar schools to expand?" which obviously makes the presumption that we think they should expand.

I know! But it does have nice big boxes to write in (eg. Abolish all Grammar schools). At least it wasn't just tick boxes.

My DD is filling it in at present, and is pointing out how biased the questionnaire is.

Completed it, it really is very biased 🤔
