Something that slightly puzzles me here:
Labour is set to reignite the political row over selective education by making it easier for disaffected parents to force the closure of their local grammar schools.
Jim Knight, the schools minister, has instructed officials to look at how to simplify the balloting process by which schools can be forced to drop selection under a 1998 law.
Why is there no mention of being able to have a ballot to enforce selection? Is it simply because the article doesn\’t mention it? Or is it not actually possible to ask for such a ballot. And if the latter, why not?
