Today’s poll: Should school admissions objections be limited to those “with proper standing”?

The Office of the Schools Adjudicator has expressed concern over the time and cost involved in multiple objections, apparently from pressure groups, to some school admissions policies and has said the DfE might consider limiting them to “those with proper standing”.

Whilst this term is not defined, it appear to look to exclude those who are not themselves seeking a place for a child. What do you think of the suggestion of restricting who can object?
