Fighting for positive changes

28th May 2004 at 01:00
Both Phil Taylor and Ted Wragg (TES, May 14) point out the continuing anomalies perpetrated by an outdated inspection system.

Clive Goodhead's plea in the same edition, to allow the Office for Standards in Education to make changes "quietly ", sits uneasily with the former.

If school self-evaluation is genuinely to be taken account of then our profession needs fighters outside the offending body who care for the negative impact that such a system has had, and continues to have.
