"James Reed And His Constant Lame Excuses"

School league tables ‘counter-productive’

SCHOOL league tables are counter-productive and can breed poor performances among pupils and teachers, according to the Education Minister.
Deputy James Reed told a Scrutiny Panel yesterday that he did not believe Jersey’s schools should be compared ‘like for like’ when it came to GCSE results because it could lead underperforming schools to lose confidence.
The meeting was called by the Education and Home Affairs Scrutiny panel following the publication of all of the Island’s school results earlier this year by civil servant John Mills – via a Freedom of Information request and released against the department’s wishes – which showed that some schools were achieving well below others.

    Now doesn't that make a lot more sense, even up here in St Ouen.
