I've long maintained one of the side effects of a curriculum which tries to cater to everyone is that the top end aren't pushed as they should be.

It's a difficult balance to maintain and no matter which direction we take, there are going to be a lot of implications and inevitably some group or other suffers. Ultimately if you want to really push the top end students you would separate students by ability not in just some but in all subjects, but then how do you account for late bloomers and a somewhat-negative view of the bottom set kids? It's just not possible within the current system, so contradictions and silly stuff like this will happen, but understanding the bigger picture here is vital.
