THE children of Asians and other ethnic minorities are making much better progress at secondary schools than white pupils in UK. A study from the University of Bristol said: ?One striking fact is that poor white students are the lowest performing of all groups at the age of 16, showing a substantial deterioration in their relative scores, though secondary school ethnics minority pupils did well because their parents were more determined that they should succeed. Issues such as quality of education did not explain why Indian children performed better than white pupils in 90 per cent of schools.? Economic Times: 09106/06. Comment: Indians always gave top priority to education. The family system gave better mental security to the child. Also they have to excel to survive on foreign soil. Back in India, it has gone to the other extreme?every year we lose few young people after the results!
