Once again, Norn Iron kids outperform the rest of the UK.
And what, prey, is the major difference between the two education systems? Perchance a little thing called ‘academic selection’, which allows people regardless of background or wealth to go to the best schools based upon their ability?
Of course, the lovely excuse for an education minister that we live with over here will probably disagree, and continue with her (and her party’s) fucked up, no plan for afterward, abolition of academic selection. What with her being a fucking muppet.
Oh well. We can enjoy these little victories while we still have them. I don’t think that the advantage will be around for too long…
