Title School exam results don't tell the whole story of education Country United Kingdom Date 18/04/19 Description The Times has been criticised for producing school league tables in Scotland. The debate ranges from schools needing to be held to account to a need for greater contextual understanding of schools.
Alas, school exam results only measure one aspect of education. Education is about much more than exams. Yes, education should be a vehicle for knowledge transfer and academic attainment. However, increasingly schools are being challenged to upskill students for life and prepare them with employment skills. Exams measure work skills to some extent, albeit not well.
