“I am fully in favor of selective education, not because I feel that only clever children should get special treatment but because I feel that ALL children should get special treatment.”

– Richard Stagg, UK

  1. It is also more meritocratic, as bright students from poor homes get the kind of academic education that the rich can purchase for their children in independent schools.
  2. The pupils of all abilities benefit from selective education. Selection allows specialist teachers to stretch the able or give proper support to students with learning difficulties.
  3. Our standing in the world economy depends on a skilled workforce and jobs that can be filled by educated people.. Selective education produces these world-beaters.
  4. Selection makes it easier for teachers. They can target a certain level at the class and don’t have to try to cope with a wide range of abilities.
  5. Most of the problems in schools come from pupils either not being challenged or being given work that they don’t understand.
  6. Clever children who are interested in learning are often bullied in normal, mixed-ability schools. After getting picked on for being different, they soon learn that it is a mistake to work hard or stand out in class. In selective schools the culture is very different and bright children can make the most of their ability without fear of being bullied.
  7. The aim of selective education is to tackle the culture of underachievement
  8. Each child has his/her education tailored to their needs
  9. Slow learners a chance to be educated at their pace.
