So what are people’s thoughts on the lifting of the ban? Well the education secretary said "I believe that selection, in new, 21st Century state grammar schools, will add to the options available to young people, to truly help make the most of their talents".
"And grammars should not just be for one better off group in society to attend. We want to see more children from disadvantaged families get into grammars - that's vital."
Tim Farron leader of the Liberal Democrats has disagrees with this stating that, "pupils of working families are getting stuffed by this plan, yet again".
"Rather than making every state school excellent the government want to spend more cash on another ideological experiment."
Teaching unions are also of the opinion of Tim Farron, expressing that this is all just a distraction from bigger issues that are facing education.
It is going to be a very interesting few months as the introduction of new grammar schools will take the U.K's education system in a different direction.
What is your opinion?
