Why stay to be pilloried?
Elsewhere in The TES this week was a report from Hay about schools being more effective where teachers are more critical of each other's performance. Why would anyone put themselves in that position if they and their schools are going to be pilloried for honest professional evaluation? The law of unforeseen consequences runs through education because too many agencies, themselves unaccountable, are holding the frontline workers to account. One thing is clear, however; greater instability as teachers enter and leave the service at a faster rate.
