Remember when we thought girls could not achieve as highly as boys? We thought it was genetic because that’s what most psychologists believed. Well life has certainly proved otherwise and girls are currently outperforming boys at every level in school in the UK.

So why are we still so wedded to the idea that other groups of pupils are incapable of achieving highly? We continue to think that our ‘potential’ defines us and that this will inevitably define educational outcomes. We routinely institutionalise this by calling students less able, more able etc.
