BBC Solent interview on ‘Are our kids tough enough – Chinese School’ Episode 1 (5 August 2015)

I spoke to Julian Clegg this morning about the Chinese School experiment being run in a Hampshire school where five Chinese teachers have taken on the task of teaching 50 Year 9 pupils. It shows the difference between these and other Year 9 pupils who have been taught by British teachers. Although the statistics show that Chinese pupils are outperforming their English counterparts academically, we can observe from this first episode that there is a distinct cultural difference between the two countries that impacts on how children are taught.
