As another study finds that, contrary to government myth, education standards have declined disastrously.
In a study, 1,300 of the brightest 16-year-olds were presented with questions from old O-level and GCSE papers.
An average of one-in-seven questions from tests taken in the 60s and 70s were answered correctly. Even pupils awarded elite A* grades in corresponding GCSEs this summer struggled with traditional questions.
Another liberal progressive lie exposed by fact based evidence. No doubt the progs will be rushing to assure us that the results prove how great education is. Oh - here we go ...
A spokeswoman for the Department for Children, Schools and Families said: “Standards in science have improved year on year thanks to 10 years of sustained investment and improvement in teaching and the education system - this is something we should celebrate, not criticise.”
Blah blah blah - more money than ever - blah blah blah - results prove - blah blah blah. Change the record will you? Why should we celebrate declining education standards? The "spokeswoman" then lets slip the truth.
“We want all young people to have a thorough grounding in chemistry, physics and biology, but also to be able to apply it to the science of climate change....."
Oh, right. In other words you teach science badly so that kids can apply it to bad science.
