At its heart the questions go to subsidy. Those who wrote the paper are clearly keen on that because, before getting to the question of selective education, they discuss how the private sector (in return for charitable status) and the universities (in return for the right to charge fees over £6000 a year) should make a contribution to the state education system. A lot of the ideas – sponsoring new free schools, offering more bursaries, lending teachers, sharing facilities etc – are already being tried, and the proposals, essentially to apply them more broadly, are unlikely to be very contentious.
