If Mr Woodhead's job is to make things better in schools then the television programme on how inspection took place in one particular school will not do it. It was an exercise in cruelty with teachers being reduced to tears and a cold attitude which negated any possibility of establishing rapport, so that a follow-up would be beneficial. There is probably as much inspection of schools in Scotland as in England. The value in Scotland is in careful follow-up and trying to improve what is not good.
