Inspector anonymity speaks volumes

3rd May 2013 at 01:00

The fact that the author of an "insider" article on UK school inspectorate Ofsted feels the need to remain anonymous speaks volumes about their perception of the culture of the organisation ("It's time to set the record straight", Comment, 26 April). That culture has to change and soon. I wonder if school inspection has the same "dread-full" aura in other countries? I doubt it.
