Master classes proposed for England's brightest students

Tailored lessons could motivate the gifted students

University lecturers could be brought in to teach England's brightest pupils. Education Secretary Ruth Kelly, about to unveil a white paper, wants schools to provide more "personalized" lessons to accommodate pupils with varying skill levels.
The plan features specialized teaching and "master classes" to keep Britain's "gifted and talented" students challenged . Such "tailored" learning would initially be for 11 to 14 year olds. Details from BBC News. (Thanks, Javed.)
