The government in Scotland will not be following education secretary Gillian Shephard in allowing English and Welsh schools to select 15% of their intakes, The Herald reports (p4).

Raymond Robertson, Scottish education minister, said yesterday:

'I don't see selection as being part of the state set-up in Scottish schools. There is no agenda here for selection.'

And neither will any opt-out schools north of the border be allowed to ditch comprehensive selection and select all their pupils, the paper reports.

'We have a separate education system, we come from a different tradition,' said the minister.
