Some people think that schools should select their pupils according to their academic ability. Others believe that young people with different abilities should be educated together. Discuss both sides and give your opinion.
It is a truth universally acknowledged that any one and every one has different talents. When it comes to education, opinions differ as to whether schoolchildren should be grouped based on their abilities, some wishing intelligent students should be separated from ordinary ones, other supporting equal education should be obtained by all the students.
On the one hand, those in favor of streaming students generally believe that this could improve the class efficiency and learning pace. In a mixed class, higher-level students tend to feel complacent if the tasks set in class are inappropriate for their level, but weaker students may also feel frustrated as the tasks may be beyond their capability. As for teachers, it is more convenient for them to choose appropriate materials, activities and pedagogic strategies according to students’ levels. Consequently, teaching quality can be guaranteed and a larger number of students could enroll in university.
On the other hand, others argue that this practice would definitely exert detrimental impacts to students’ dignity. This is especially true of adolescents who might feel inferior as it can be quite discouraging to be at the bottom of the top grade. The last result teachers want to see is that their students are demotivated from study, which is caused by streaming. Contrarily, students in mixed-ability classes could learn from each other and develop their team spirit. Advanced students can obtain satisfaction from helping lower-level classmates. In fact, our education is based on the belief that each student could achieve integrated development by developing not only academic capacity but also personal qualities and social skills which can be contributed by mixed ability teaching.
In conclusion, I personally believe that although streaming is more efficient for students to acquire knowledge, more important is that students should learn to co-operate, to share, and to develop social skills which play a more essential role in their future development. Therefore, mixed-ability classes contribute more positively to a child's psychological development.
