We remain so niave in education, or simply grossly under resourced.

Students need significant support to identify 'who they are' early on so that schooling can be individualised rather than trying to get everyone over the same hurdles at the same time. The most absurd thing in UK education is not to allow students to stay back a year or two in order to get the grades they want to progress. In France and the US this can allow the determined student who needs more time and further 'learning' to get the grades and so progess to the institution to study the subject they have their hearts set on, rather than being rejected by the 'system' far, far too early in a cycle which now is a life-time of learning.
