Born in the wrong place for good schools? 在英国想上好学校 要生对地方?



文字稿

英国教育政策研究所发布的一项最新报告称,在英格兰,地理位置的划分对接受好学校教育机会的影响越来越明显。2010年到2015年间,在伦敦接受中学教育的学生取得学业进步的可能性最大。请看以下报道。

This research suggests that London is taking an increasing share of the secondary schools where pupils make the most progress. But places such as Blackpool and Hartlepool (in the north of England) are being left even further behind as debates about social mobility increasingly focus on regional differences.

The study says deprived areas of London can have more high-performing schools than better-off areas outside the capital. David Laws, the think tank’s chair and a former education minister, said the widening inequality was “shocking“.

But the Department for Education said that its investments in disadvantaged areas would help to spread opportunities more evenly across the country.
