When primary teachers have found time over Christmas to look at Jim Rose's interim report they will have realised that he's missed a great opportunity to challenge the disproportionate predominance of literacy and numeracy and has run away from addressing many of the most important issues, especially the relationship between national testing, the content of the curriculum and individual school accountability.
And in those memorable words of Janet and Jim:
"Look, Jim, look."
"Fix, Jim, fix."
"Fluff, Jim, fluff."
"Run, Jim, run."
