Who is the brave soul who dared not put his or her name to last week's angst-ridden letter about Drayton Manor High School?
Where is the writer's evidence that those who are not predicted to do as well "as children geared to work to the very best of their ability are usually expelled before they sit their exams"?
Is this just a class-war rant?
What on earth does the writer mean by 'people of ethnicity'? Every person alive has ethnicity; all it means is their racial heritage.
If the writer means non-white children then why not just say so?
Since children whose ethnicity is from the Indian sub-continent regularly outperform other racial groups - often because their culture is not to play truant or slack, but to work at the very best of their ability - how come the headmaster, who happens to be a Sikh, is guilty of a 'twisted way of revenge' now the school's once desired grammar status is no more?
The writer equates the alleged expulsion rate with socially disadvantaged children.'
If indeed Sir Pritpal Singh 'started from the bottom', at least he did not get to where he is by whinging about being rejected because he was a person of ethnicity.
As for expecting the pupils to address him correctly, that was once normal good manners, and something schools used to teach pupils, along with paying attention, being obedient and working to the best of their ability. All such breaches often resulted in detention.
In its full page advertisement (at taxpayers' expense, just like the High Court hearing), Ealing Council states, 'admission criteria remains (sic) unchanged.'
If that is the best our litigious council's education department can manage, then perhaps a place can be found for the ad's writer. Unless, of course, he or she is from the 'wrong side of town'.
