Dearne MP John Healey has called on UKIP councillors to say whether they back Nigel Farage’s plans to bring back segregated grammar and secondary schools.

He said evidence showed poorer children perform worse when pupils are segregated from other students.

He added: “Our schools need to be better still, but improvement comes from a stretching curriculum, good teachers and good local leadership – not giving up on poor pupils and creating an apartheid in state education.”
