Top state schools colonised by middle classes
Further proof that the UK education system (along with their health system and their transpo system) is messed up…
You can’t blame a parent if they do what they have to, to ensure that their kid gets the best education.. they pay taxes too don’t they. Sure something has to be done to help those that are losing out, but you can’t blame the parents. I’ll be the first to accept that the UK prob had the best system back when they were ‘The Empire’, but times have changed, but their education system hasn’t…

You gotta like that the one of th Tories’ arguments is that it’s worse than it was under the Conservatives. ‘Hey, we ain’t saying that we’ve got a solution… don’t want to go out on a limb or anything, but hey we’re just not as bad as them.’ Well, here’s an idea, why doesn’t one of the parties try being the best rather than just not the worst? LibDems wanna step up? yeah, didn’t think so…

The debate though, to gives credence to the argument that the UK is not much better than their American counterparts in producing adults with high literacy rates – check the following chart.
