Economics at SOAS looks interesting....
"We place great emphasis on introducing our students to the history of economics as a discipline and, importantly, to some of the alternative, 'heterodox' approaches to economic analysis, including Marxist, feminist, Keynesian, and Schumpeterian perspectives"
But from the 10 years I’ve been here, this is what I know... Local schools has a banding from 1 to 3, 1 being the best at Academic grades from their students, if your child studies in a band 3 Primary school, even with the best of grades, they will have very little chance being offered into a band 1 secondary school. Getting into university after secondary school, band 1 students get in easier even with moderate grades when compared to band 3 students. Basically the banding is very important even at kindergarten, because some are linked to primary schools, therefore if u want your kids to get into a high banding secondary school, you need to plan their kindergarten carefully.
I remember when my elder daughter was choosing her primary school and the day when offered into a band 1 school, my work colleague who lived nearby was very envious of me because his daughter only got into a band 3 primary school. He is local and is the one who explained the banding to me.
Therefore currently, both my daughters being in band 1 primary and secondary school, gives them a good stepping stone for their future.
Yes, and thanks to the OP for answering my questions so clearly. So much better than getting into arguments and insults.
We have banding in some schools in the UK. In that context it is banding students according to ability within the school and maybe only for certain subjects. This will vary from school to school even within schools of the same type.
This is different from the banding that the OP mentioned and subsequently explained.
Anyway here is a link to a 2009 study about racism against Chinese people.
The interview excerpts are pretty much in line with what I saw and experienced
