Tizz about tables

18th June 2010 at 01:00

The TES needs a new editor. Anyone who thinks choosing a school is the same as selecting car insurance or a gas supplier should not be editing a major educational journal ("Tables: a sensible way to compare the market", June 4). Sats have very little to do with education, edification or enlightenment and everything to do with publicising imagined government achievements, promoting the careers of ministers and punishing teachers and pupils.
