The Equitable Schools Book Summary

The Equitable Schools Book: 1997 by Volume editor Klaus Boehm

This is a comprehensive guide to independent schools in the UK. This edition contains over 530 independent secondary schools, including tutorial colleges and over 20 British schools abroad. The right school cannot be chosen by looking at narrow and often misleading league tables. This book provides the essential information necessary to make an informed choice. It offers parents hard facts on over independent secondary schools: fees, assisted places, schoarships and extras; pupils, ratio of girls:boys, day:boarding, state-school entrants:pre-school entrants; staff, the pupil/teacher ratio, the Heads' backgrounds, approaches and policies on discipline; the exams offered - GCSE and A-levels, S-grades and Highers, or the International Baccalaureate; vocational courses, languages, foreign exchange visits, what the pupils go to do, and many more important areas are covered. There is also advice on vital issues, such as bullying, dyslexia, corporal punishment and expulsion and the mechanics of the education system, such as league tables, COBISEC, the national curriculum and registration requirements.
