    So four in five are OK? Why twist to the negative?

    So 20% of students are in the bottom 20%? They'll be telling us next that half of them are below average.

    Isn't that to be expected? Normal distribution curve and all that. And wasn't it only a few years ago that 20% of children were on the SN register? I know you're not allowed to do that now - they're apparently not SN, just under-achieving, so it's the teachers' fault - but it doesn't mean the difficulties those children have have gone away!
