Sun Xueling on impact of full subject-based banding on students
26 Jul 2021 02:54pm
Students of schools which are piloting full subject-based banding (SBB) have a more diverse network of friends, drawn from across the different courses, compared with those in schools which have yet to implement full SBB. They form stronger friendships based on common interests and treat their peers with respect, regardless of their courses. There are also indications of more students adopting "growth mindsets". Minister of State for Education Sun Xueling shared these findings on the impact of full SBB in reply to an MP's questions in Parliament on Monday (Jul 26).
