Mike Kent is one of the few sane voices in the data-obsessed, target-driven world of education we inhabit today. Not only does he thoroughly understand teachers and teaching, he always manages to make us smile on Friday evenings.
Word has it that Mr Kent's school is an extremely successful one, with a happy and loyal staff. Perhaps Mr Sweetman might like to visit it to find out what leadership is all about?
