Mike Kent's criticism of inspectors is outstanding

9th March 2012 at 00:00

I was moved to tears when I read the exceptional piece written by Mike Kent as Simon ("Who's not so clever now?"). It seems that we are failing so many Simons in the vain attempt to make schools, teachers and the government look good. School accountability stinks and if allowed to continue, will only further erode the hopes and dreams of people like Simon.
