They've been warning us about this for years, but nothing happens.

The gap . . .   ? ? ?    . . . What gap?

Disadvantaged and BAME pupils lost more learning in lockdown and need urgent support, researchers say

. . . the authoritative study by the National Foundation for Educational Research (NFER), based on interviews with more than 3,000 teachers and heads at more than 2,000 schools, revealed that disadvantaged and black and minority ethnic (BAME) children had gone backwards compared with their better-off peers since March.

While the average learning lost was three months for all pupils, according to teachers, more than half of pupils at schools in the most deprived areas lost four months or more, compared with just 15% of those in the least deprived areas.

And while just 1% of pupils in the wealthiest areas were estimated to have lost six months in effective learning to the lockdown, in the poorest areas more than 10 times as many were affected as badly.

The research found that, based on estimates supplied by teachers, the learning gap between disadvantaged pupils and their peers in July 2020 was 46% bigger than it was a year earlier.

I'd have been more sympathetic if they were referring to the class divide at large. When they relegate the class struggle to students alone, I simply don't give a shiat anymore.

Well, I am impressed with your excellent deduction on the UK class system. I am completely overcome and you have totally turned me against a system that let me get a Masters and PHd against my non upper class upbringing. If I didn't have your wonderful advice my nurse mother in Papworh and my father as a Flight Sargent in the RAF would never have been able to afford me to go to even secondary school.

So for that I thank you for your innate knowledge of our system of learning. You are truly an innovative thinker that we can all learn from.

, this happened 30 years ago you immature twerp who thinks anything not American is by definition incorrect.

Oooo, look how ruffled their feathers get when someone criticizes something about the UK...and yet they are so free with sharing their ideas about how the US should be run.

How very curious.

It's ok, you are still very special and important.  Mummy loves you.
