Total Nonsense from the Evening Standard

5th August 2010

Apparently the fact that schools have recently been getting lower grades in OFSTED inspections shows falling standards and a failure by schools.

What total nonsense!

The article totally fails to mention the fact that so many school were improving and doing well that a new inspection framework was designed to raise the bar- if you raise the bar on judgements then of course less will get the top grades! I hate the fact that this article doesn’t explain this and that so many people will read it and be unaware of the amazing work going on in schools and how much they’re improving.
