One-size doesn’t fit all, educators say

Twenty percent of Copenhagen schoolchildren say they find their lessons too easy, while another twenty percent say they are too hard. Niels Egelund, a professor of education, said the results show that schools are not prepared to teach students at different levels. The study comes as 3,000 of the city’s school personnel this week begin training in how to teach to students with varying needs. Teachers themselves said the training would not be enough, particularly when it comes to students who need extra help. – Berlingske
