The Gold Standard in education

I recommend reading this article:
The IB is potentially education’s Gold Standard, whose value is constant both between different countries, and, equally important, from one decade to the next. Like the original Gold Standard, we are likely to find that it has irresistible advantages.
It suffers from the all too common conflation of England with Britain but the general message applies here too unfortunately.

"If it doesn't get measured it doesn't get done." Is a "famous"ish quote.

The fact that the author, "karlmagnus", conflates "England with Britain" makes me strongly suspect that he is not from the "top quartile" of the cited "intellectual Bell Curve".

Being able to measure something is always the first step towards improvement.

Denationalised "Highers": what a good idea.
