Letters extra: Ministers should admit mistakes

In my experience schools and departments that work best are those that work as a team. Surely the main point about PRP (Peter Willoughby TES 6902) is that it will lead to the reverse?

Why share your good practise with the teacher next door when you can earn more money for your better results?

It is this along with target setting, league tables, performance management, OFSTED etc that has caused many teachers to leave and hence the necessity to even consider a greater role for teaching assistants (David Millband TES 6902). Just once it would be nice to hear an education minister admit to mistakes of the last ten years and put things right instead of passing the buck.
