MOE Removes Secondary School Banding and Revamps School Awards
Ministry of Education Press Release (September 12, 2012)
The Ministry of Education has announced plans to modify its measures of school effectiveness and will shift its emphasis to promote best practices over academic banding (or tracking). Reforms include abolishment of school rankings that are based on academic results, an emphasis on good practices over score-based awards, and building partnerships with parents and the community. The MOE will promote sharing across schools by establishing an online Good School Practices (GSP) repository to encourage the sharing of ideas between schools and teachers.
