Schools and social engineering

 

Sir, – Some 20 years ago our schools were institutions of education and learning, trying to provide equal opportunity for all. However, over recent years they are more and more being used as tools of social engineering, usurping the role of the parents, trying to provide equality of outcome for all. It is a change that I have huge concerns about. – Yours, etc,
