Kent has the right idea

So Bryan Meyer ("Kent is out of touch", Letters, 15 March) is fed up with Mike Kent complaining about Ofsted and thinks he is out of touch. I suspect that most readers would think the opposite. It is obvious from his columns that Mr Kent has a thorough understanding of what primary education should be and, like most of us, he is appalled that children are being subjected to such a data-driven agenda and restricted curriculum, merely to satisfy the whims of politicians and their narrow, short-term visions. Rather than making "vitriolic and out-of-date comments", Mr Kent attacks only those who damage the profession, like aggressive Ofsted inspectors and dubious consultants. Oh, I've just noticed that Mr Meyer is a consultant.

Mark Raven, Kent.
