Equality depends on education. England's class of 2023 have suffered a grave injustice over A-level results
20 August 2023
Lee Elliot Major explains why England's 2023 school leavers have been unfairly treated over their A-level results. Just under half of A-level entries in the private sector in 2023 were graded A* and A grades, compared with just 22% in the state sector. In the post-pandemic era, the dream that education could somehow act as the great social leveller seems a distant fantasy, he writes.
