ceitagh BS: Different Education Systems (18) RE: BS: Different Education Systems 03 Jun 00


Soph, highschool in Ontario is still streamed, the only grade they destreamed was grade 9, and that was a total disaster. I was in the first class to go thru the newly destreamed gr. 9, and the teachers had so much trouble teaching us enough that we could go into the stream of our choice the next year without leaving slower students behind....it was a real pain, and put my class at a disadvantage in advanced math and science courses the rest of the way thru. Streaming is useful, I think, since it can target different strengths and goals, but i know that at least in my highschool, the kids taking General were looked down at as underacheivers, and mostly they lived down to expectations....i'm worried about what is going to happen to trades in this country if they're not given more respect.

Pax,
Ceitagh
