The Economist: Education: The road to London

The capital's schools are the best in the country. Can they be copied?
According to a report last year by researchers at the Institute for Fiscal Studies and the London School of Economics, one-sixth of the improvement in central London schools was the result of growing numbers of ethnic minority children, who everywhere in Britain tend to do better in exams and improve more while in school than white pupils. Some also suggest that inner London's startling gentrification has played a role, attracting better teachers to the capital and pushing out poor families, whose children tend to be less swotty.
