The grant-maintained status of schools and parents' school choice, implemented by the Tories, has produced a shambles whereby children cannot attend their local schools. Parents in Bishops Stortford are now having to send their children to a school in Stansted, Essex, up to nine miles away, because all the local schools are full of children from outside the town. One child actually lives next door to his local school but will have to be transported to Stansted.
