The Daily Mail said yesterday.
A report produced for the Department for Children, Schools and Families found that Pakistani, Bangladeshi, Indian, Caribbean, African and Chinese children - as well as girls from all ethnic backgrounds - are outperforming our sons at GCSE level, with the Chinese stealing an average of six grades from indigenous white children.
Daily Mail education correspondent Laura Clark said: 'The findings will increase pressure on the Government to reform the system of extra funding for ethnic minority pupils. Schools are meant to spend the £200million a-year Ethnic Minority Achievement Grant on "underperforming" groups.'
The story was originally broken by The News of the World, but writers for the red-top tabloid proved themselves inferior to their insightful Mail counterparts in missing the association between white pupils' exam failures and Government grants for minority students.
NotW scribe Matthew Davies instead naively suggested that the problem might be down to white families not impressing the importance of secondary education on their children as much as more ambitious Indian and Chinese families.
Mail readers agreed that the Government was almost certainly discriminating against white people:
But the prospect of racial equality in schools was laughed out of the pig pen with a slurry of negative votes from fellow commentators:
The BNP's education policy lists 'ending the scandalous and racist neglect that has left working class white boys at the bottom of the table for academic achievement' as one of its key goals.
