Submission + - Drop Math to Make Your School Look Good

Coryoth writes: "The BBC is reporting on accusations that UK students are being encouraged to drop mathematics and other "hard" courses so that schools can look better on league tables. Instead students are encouraged to take what are percieved to be easier courses in which they can earn better grades, and hence raise the school's standings. In response UK Universities are having to provide remedial math courses for the incoming science students who have not taken upper level math courses at high school."
