You do what?!

Today a colleague pointed to a sentence in a document he was reading and asked me whether it was correct English. It contained information for parents of prospective students of a school somewhere. (I think he was reading it for professional purposes, not personal.) The sentence said something to the effect of ‘We steam our students into classes based on their ability’.

I assured him that was incorrect English.
