I have to say I think here it very much depends on if the kids go to state or private school as to the standard of teaching they receive as well as the standard of encouragement they get at home
all 3 of my nieces/nephews went to state school, got crap marks for both reasons
Many of my clients kids go to private schools and are doing very well and in both languages.
Some friends of mine teach in a private school and also see a big difference
