Based on the grammar on BF, I suspect many did not attend.

I've never attended a grammar school. Is it a place where you learn grammar? I've often had difficulty with capitalization, and of course proper use of a semicolon. Do you then go to a Mathematics school? What about the sciences?

my grammar school was so cool. the 3rd grade girls wore lipstick and gave me my 2nd 1st kiss. my 1st 1st kiss was out front of another school 3 years earlier. no lipstick in kindergarten but hey - I didn't know what I was missing. what the heck happened to 1st and 2nd grade? looser grades I guess

I went to Emerson Elementary in LaCrosse, Wisconsin. This was around 1965; Second Grade. The teacher, Mrs. Cameron, told us that it was OK to bomb Vietnamese villages and kill innocent people because there were communists hiding in the nearby jungle.

Ending a sentence in a preposition is something up with which I will not put.

Considering the context, UK, I couldn't resist.

Plus, harassing teachers is fun.
