Reader’s Comment: Dumbed-down education is cheap n easy


In response to Mark Ellse: Maths can be taught to children who find it difficult, Bonce wrote:

It’s far better to do what the British educational establishment has already done if you want to save money, and do not want to have to push the kids too hard, so lots of them fail.

You change the exams to something called GCSEs and you make them so much easier that everyone other than the bottom 10 per cent gets a pass of some form or another.

It also allows you to create a booming industry out of university education – because now 40 per cent of the population “qualifies” to go, whereas before it was only the 5-10 per cent who would qualify.

You also save money because you only teach to one level – rather than having to teach to the gold standard of the old O Level and the CSE at the same time.
