Thinking it is a real pile of nonsense, as it does not take into consideration the areas of deprivation. The schools that have done really well are in middle -class, well to do areas. Yet the schools that have done well stick to traditional teaching methods, in the main. It's weans in seats, having respect and learning. The ones that have done very badly have adopted the CfE in earnest. You can't blame them really, as academia is really not the priority in socially deprived areas. I think it comes down to the parents really. Look at the success of the exam factories, i.e. the private schools. They are so successful because mammy and daddy are shelling out a fortune on wee Kirsty to become a doctor. There is parental backing. Should we be judging schools only on Higher passes?
