The Office for Standards in Education tells us setting is a powerful way to improve performance (TES, January 15).
Straker and Reynolds tell us that when they have taught teachers how to teach maths properly there will be no need for setting.
Stannard and Barry tell us that under no circumstances are we to set children for "shared texts", grammar or word work, even in mixed-age classes. It is all as clear as mud.
