Fit to judge?

4th April 1997 at 01:00
Ted Wragg hits the nail on the head again with regard to those awful Office for Standards in Education inspectors (TES, March 21).

I mean, how could anybody be fitted to pronounce on educational matters after just one week's training in a hotel?

I bet professors of education like Ted have weeks and weeks of training in a hotel, not to mention the years of experience in the field that the OFSTED lot surely don't have. They don't, do they?
