An article I found interesting

Outlining the research to the Independent Schools Council’s annual conference in London today, Rudolf Eliott Lockhart, its head of research, said: “The real reason was that the most disadvantaged students simply don’t apply in enough numbers and don’t study the necessary A-levels in enough numbers.”

He added: “Schools in the independent sector have the good fortune to be free of government interference and are thus able to choose the best curriculum for their pupils, concentrating on education rather than targets.

“Our schools are able to guide pupils towards the subjects that will benefit them rather than the subjects that will help the school rise up a league table.”
