A case of double standards?

21st July 2006 at 01:00
You report ("Art airbrushed out of self-evaluation", TES, July 7) that according to Ofsted, secondary teachers should be observed at work at least once a year.

It would be interesting to know why the same document recommends that primary-level teachers should be observed "several times" a year.
