OCR, languages, academies, Progress 8
Join the TES team as they discuss the education world's biggest stories of the past seven days.

This week we look at what OCR's decision to dump GCSE and A-levels in modern languages means for schools and the exams industry as a whole. We talk scatter charts as part of an in-depth analysis into the government's plans for a fully academised system, and we grapple with the fiendishly difficult Progress 8 measure, and ask: "Will anyone understand how it works?" Tune in and enjoy.
