With reference to Chris Woodhead's letter last week, I'm sure Professor Colin Richards needs no support from me, but I believe that being "fired" from Ofsted for not carrying out the diktats and inflexible methods of that organisation will be seen as a badge of honour by many in education. The "closure" of Ofsted would be equally welcomed.
