Newcastle Labour opposes the Tories proposals to reintroduce grammar schools.
The Tories plan for grammar schools will divide children, providing a privileged education for a few, and a second-class education for the rest. Selection in education divides families and communities and increases inequality.
Newcastle Labour wants to tackle inequality and divisions, not create more - by the reintroduction of the outdated grammar and secondary modern system.
We launched our petition alongside Jeremy Corbyn at the Monument and we are calling you to join us in opposing the Tories divisive education plans.
