Red Shirting Article

What struck me as the key point not brought out in the article is, if the educational experiences in schools for children in later years are adequately differentiated, then most of the negative points highlighted disappear. They are only really danger issues if classrooms stay stuck in the ‘one size fits all’ groove in terms of the learning offered (in which case student boredom is a strong possibility).
