Education for poor - Another fail

Poorer pupils in secondary school are more likely to be excluded than they are to pass one of the government’s key measures of GCSEs, new analysis from education charity Teach First.
A higher percentage of secondary students eligible for free school meals (FSM) were temporarily or permanently excluded from school last year than achieved the English Baccalaureate (EBacc), a collection of core academic subjects that ministers want the vast majority of pupils to sit.
Only 10.3 per cent of FSM students in Year 11 achieved the EBacc measure last year, whereas 10.7 per cent of FSM students in secondary schools in 2016/17 were excluded.
