360 reasons not to listen to snipey Mikey
Isn't it about time you got that old dinosaur, Mike Kent, off your back page?
Sniping at any sense of progression in education or at the notion that school leaders might be developed and supported is not wittily old-fashioned, but plain daft. Three-hundred-and-sixty-degree assessment is not remotely newfangled either and it has both strengths and weaknesses - but if I was a potential school leader I would much prefer it to the advice of this old grouch.
