Maths textbooks should be banned because they intimidate pupils, a leading girls’ school headmistress has said.
Jane Prescott, head of Portsmouth High School said that students risk becoming anxious if they can see that their classmates are “galloping ahead” of them.
The move has been a “confidence booster” for girls, and allows them to “feel encouraged, and feel they are good at Maths”, Ms Prescott said.
That’s rather the comprehensive ideal run riot isn’t it?
Mustn’t let those who grasp the subject run ahead now, must we?
