LETTER: Mediocrity is not OK with me
Yes, do let us abolish grammar schools and other divisive institutions, such as the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, the Royal Schools of Art, Ballet and Opera etc, which are available only to the talented few. To these we must also get rid of those Centres of Excellence restricted just to training promising young footballers, cricketers, athletes and other sporting achievers. Surely that is not fair on the less motivated pupil? Dividing youngsters again.
