【信報:寄宿學校攻略】名校紛紛拒被排名
英國詩人雪萊說:冬天來了,春天還會遠嗎?
 
現在春天已經來了,距離英國報章排山倒海刊登各A-Levek及GCSE學校排名榜的日子,也已經不遠了吧?
 
每年夏天是英國各種學校排名榜揭曉的季節,家長們誠惶誠恐地在排名名單中參詳子女的前程,但另一方面,英國大部分學校的校長何嘗不也一樣誠惶誠恐地查詢自己學校的排名?雖然英國教育界近年批評排名榜的聲音不絕於耳,但講到尾都是一紙成績表,表述了學生公開試的表現,具有一定影響力。尤其這些量化了的數據,最適宜用來為學校做推廣招徠海外學生,「本校在乜乜排名榜排名第幾」的標籤,足以風行海外,難怪不少校長一方面如入「排名榜不足反映學校教育水平」的抗議行列,一方面又忙不迭把公開試成績呈交媒體作排名用,兼心驚肉跳地等待名次揭盅。
 
唾棄排行榜 
只不過,也非所有英國學校校長都如此自我分裂的。愈來愈多頂尖學校陸續表示不願再在排行榜上爭一日長短,故不會把學校公開試成績呈交作排名之用。老牌精英學校如Eton和St Paul’s幾年前就表態對排名遊戲拒絕再玩,最近加入這行列的,還有Wellington College。其校長一矢中的地講出了這些排行榜的弊病:「在排行榜頭二百之外,也可以找到出色的學校,正如頭五十名中,也會有質素平庸的學校。」
 
說得不能在對,教育之深與廣,豈能概括在一個線性的排行榜內呢?
 
我在這裏和其他平台,已經不厭其煩地分享過我對排名榜功用的懷疑。毫無疑問,這些大小排名榜對家長來說,是有用的參考資料,但大家必須客觀對待之。萬萬不能因為某校擁有高名次,便錯誤以為這間學校具備貴子弟最需要的條件。須知每個同學求學的需要不一樣,而一些非常重要的資訊,例如學校對學生的品格培養、牧養照顧、師生關係及心理支援等,這些榜往往卻無法提供。
 
總言之,不管多巴閉多權威,任何排行榜都不是《聖經》也不是天書,排名可以作為探索升學路參考的起點,但絕不能是一錘定音的結論。
