Ejemplo de uso

Unification of  the  formal  arrangements  for  basic  education  has  also  tended  to  diversify  school  intake  and  to  make  the  task  of  teaching  in  most  schools more complex. In this context, ability grouping in schools may  seem  an  option  based  on  a  fairly  rational  organizational  approach (Gamoran et al., 1995) and on the educational assumption that, by grouping similar students together, it will be easier to ensure that their needs are properly met (Dupriez, 2001: 24).
