    In my openion all these people that get a* are the reason people fail to achieve above a c because teachers try and maintain the pupils wih A*s and disadvantage others giving them seconds in education.Teachers should just teach everybody equally and give extra support when needed.

    Does any one agree teaching standards need to change to fit everybods needs not just their A* pupils

    But everyone deserves an equal amount of teaching time, regardless of how clever they are, everyone should be pushed to their limit...

    I'm sure that's difficult to manage, especially when you have a class of people of varying abilities.

    but surely those 'swots' are more willing to learn, and therefore easier to teach?- so are automatically going to get more from lessons etc.
    i'm not saying poorer students shouldn't be helped, but i do think it's unfair that someone who is bright should not be encouraged just because they are talented- everyone has a right to a decent education and should be allowed to reach their potential.

    That's why i think the idea of grammer schools- giving academic students more opportunities, is a good one. It's also why i believe in private education- it's dreadful to make a gifted pupil 'switch off' because they are too clever. I also think that setting of pupils should be encouraged at secondary school especially in core subjects at gcse (definately helped me with my maths, science + french)- that way the teaching is aimed at a smaller range of academic abilty.

    I agree with you for the following reason:
    Since the publication of league tables schools have been under extra pressure to get as many students through 5 A* - C grades. Their really bright students will probably get those easily but the ones' who are borderline C/D have to be brought up to C to be included in the % getting A*-C grades.
    I think that league tables should not be published nationally - each school can provide the date for interested parents at Open Days.

    dont agree with that at all. as said, people need teaching up to their limits. a few very smart people are worth more than a group of dullards.

    putting every1 through university is clearly a waste of time, there are far too many stupid people about.
