Ditch Classroom streaming

“Separating schoolchildren into classes based on their ability is ineffective and detrimental to pupils’ education, research has found.”

This may be true for students streamed into lower classes. Not so great for the students that have to wait……….. or miss out on learning while teachers spend all their time on associated behavioral and/or additional learning needs.

If we do go this way then Teachers Aides will be more critical as will differentiated teaching skills.
