Beyond "Ability": Some European Alternatives
Wrigley, Terry
FORUM: for promoting 3-19 comprehensive education, V55 n1 p59-72 2013
This article draws on European approaches to differentiation that do not entail fatalistic determinism. It describes two challenging initiatives in Denmark, where democratic learning and learning for democracy are enshrined in law. Other examples come from Germany, from the Bielefeld laboratory school and a sixth form college, where planning for diversity is the starting point for curriculum development.
