The Welsh Conservatives have called for the reintroduction of grammar schools to the education system here in Wales. They say streaming should happen at 14, not at 11, and vocational skills must have the same value as academic skills.

Your views on grammar school proposals

The Welsh Conservatives have proposed a return to a grammar school system in Wales, saying it would raise standards.

The party wants pupils to be separated into two streams - academic and vocational - at the age of 14.

There are no grammar schools left in Wales, but 164 in England.

What do you think about the proposals? Would they raise standards, and help make pupils fit for the workplace, as the Welsh Conservatives have said? Or would they be divisive, and a backwards step, as critics have said?
