Some people think that schools should select students according to their academic abilities, while others believe that it is better to have students with different abilities studying together. Discuss both views and state your own opinion.
People have divergent views as to whether or not students should be divided into different groups based on their academic competencies. In my opinion, although mixed-ability classess can be beneficial in terms of peer support, I believe distinguishing stronger from weaker students will lead to better academic progress in the long term.
Those in favor of mixed-ability classrooms point out that students benefit from peer support. Students of course can seek help from their teachers; however, their teachers are not always available to give students timely responses or assisstance. It is therefore helpful when those who are left behind can turn to their brighter classmates for support. Stronger students then can assist weaker students in grasping the fundamental concepts in lessons or completing assignments. Certain countries with high-ranking education systems around the world such as Japan and Finland adopt a policy of not differentiating students and, they would argue, thrive at least partially as a result. The success of these nations to some extent proves the effectiveness of mixed-ability classess.
However, I believe that the policy mentioned above largely only benefits weaker students and that allowing students to learn with equally capable peers generally results in superior academic progress. Bright students, when grouped together, can advance faster without feeling bored with the pace of the lessons. These students also then have chances to compete with their peers, and this competition motivates them to work even harder to truly excel beyond their normal limits. Less gifted students also benefit from this separation as teachers can tailor teaching strategies that suit these students. Those who struggle academically but study in a class with students who learn quickly may not only find it challenging to keep up with their peers but also become insecure over time. Thus, distinctions based on ability between students bring advantages to all regardless of their academic prowess.
In conclusion, despite peer support engendered by mixed classes, I believe both strong and weak students would achieve better academic results when studying with those of similar competencies. It would be ideal if schools allowed students to study at their own speed.
