Ofsted chief: state schools' failure of brightest 'an issue of national concern'
Richard AdamsSir Michael Wilshaw, the chief inspector of schools, has said that the failure by state schools to nurture their brightest pupils is "an issue of national concern", after an investigation found two-thirds of the most advanced pupils entering secondary education do not achieve top GCSE results.
Ofsted proposes that maintained schools and academies devote more energy cultivating their brightest pupils, and that all pupils be given a new form of report card that tells parents how their children are performing in comparison with their peers nationally.
"Across the country we know that too many of our most able children are underperforming in state comprehensive schools. The national picture tells a discouraging story," Wilshaw said at the launch of the report on Wednesday.
