Hard Evidence: do grammar schools boost social mobility?

Matthew Dickson, Lindsey Macmillan, Simon Burgess

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle

Abstract

The role grammar schools should play in English education is still hotly contested, more so today than it has been in years. This is despite the fact that there are only 164 grammar schools operating in England today (out of more than 3,000 state secondary schools), a huge decline from their sixties heyday.
