SOME ESSENTIAL TRUTHS ABOUT ENGLISH SCHOOLS
* Schools do make a difference; and mostly they make the same amount of difference.
* Comprehensive Schools have been a great success story.
* The 47% of students who leave school with fewer than 5 GCSEs (including English and maths) at grade C or above are not failures.
* The fact that 53% of all students leave school with at least 5 GCSEs (including English and maths) at grade C or above is an amazing achievement by young people, schools and teachers.
