Michael Gove often talks about leaving the running of schools to the professionals. We agree!
Below are headlines from the BBC website over the last few months. We suggest what Gove actually says and what he actually does are two different things!
‘Schools minister cracks down on league table incentives’
‘Ofsted plans to scrap ‘satisfactory’ label for schools’
‘Poor teachers face tougher system under shake-up’
‘New Ofsted chief takes aim at incapable teachers’
‘Third of schools in Wales not good enough, says Estyn’
‘Labour ‘would have cut school building scheme’
‘Ofsted head to tackle coasting and incompetent teachers’
‘Schools in England will face no-notice inspections’
‘Ofsted inspections to scrutinise teaching quality’
‘Michael Gove queries schools’ Ofsted ratings’
‘Education Bill outlines shake-up for England’s schools’
The great thing is that teachers are breathtakingly resilient! We are the eternal optimists! We get on with our jobs despite the headlines above! This is what makes teachers great!
