Middle Years Without Middle Schools
Coltham, Jeanette B.
Education 3-13, 6, 1, 23-6, Apr 78
Are the children now attending primary schools and transferring to secondary education at 11 + necessarily at a serious disadvantage educationally as compared with their contemporaries who transfer at 8 or 9 (or even 10) to a middle school, and enter a secondary school at 12 or 13 (or even 14)? In attempting to answer this question considers the point at which the break of a transfer between schools occurs, and the nature of education and the curriculum provided in the relevant institutions.
