A Broken System Change Needed

‘Last night’s episode of “School” proves it: it’s time to get rid of Ofsted’ (TES)

An opinion piece from TES writer Tom Rogers on the documentary “School” and what it shows about the way that Ofsted are damaging schools and to good teachers.

“I’ve never seen a single programme about British education that better captured why teachers are leaving the profession than episode 3 of BBC Two’s School this week. It highlighted an interesting debate on what’s causing the crisis: funding? Ofsted and accountability systems? Or school leadership? I’ve made clear my view on this – above everything else, it’s the unjust and intense pressure on teachers to impact the progress of their students day in, day out, that is at the root of the crisis.”
