THE RICH STEAL THE BEST SCHOOL PLACES

 Bexley is a reprehensible example of this. 'A' grade children losing out on the randomly decided lottery of admission criteria for grammar places and instead being offered 50% GCSE pass rate inferior schools instead. The rich, using tutors, buying up nearby properties and knowing how to milk the appeal system win through. As a fall back they attend the local church, smooth talk the cleric, morph to observe any religious requirement, including confirmation, often with a middle class accent and squeeze into an advantaged faith driven school instead. Academies, allowed to be laws unto themselves, avoid the normal public scrutiny and so the rich and powerful steal again the chase and the poor are ground into the cattle market school provision that caters for the remaining 'rabble'.
