Ripples prove college's worth

31st October 2003 at 00:00
If it were not so serious, I would be laughing at the irony of Professor Colin Richards criticising "pseudo language" from the National College for School Leadership and yet using such everyday words as "serendipity" and "obfuscates" (TES, October 24).

The college must be working well towards putting the learner at the front of educational development. Why else would it be causing such ripples among those with a vested interest in telling people what is good for them?
