Less than 60% level 4 - you're failing

  1. From David Cameron's speech today.
    Well this is going to be interesting times.

     
  2. What sort of percentage of schools would that mean do you think?

    that'll be interesting, with 2 kids in Y6!
     
  4. Apparently, that's about 12% of all primary schools.
     
  5. 60% of children meeting national expectations equals 40% failure. Do you not think this is unacceptable? Do you not think Mr Cameron is right to challenge this?
     
  6. My question is this;

    HOW CAN ALL CHILDREN BE AVERAGE???
    If they were then there would be no average!

    Well, if the <u>entire </u>'average' range and above-average were included, it would be about 84%
    (I think). But from the mean up would seem fairer - about 34% mean to
    high average + 16% above average ability = 50% (if of course you have a
    cross-section of the population).
