He also asserts that "the standards site will be ready for you when you are ready for it".
It certainly is now a wonderful site but the trouble is Professor Barber,I have been ready for it since January when nothing much was happening on it - and quite a waste of my time it was logging in month after month to see no content.
Since that time I have been lobbying the website's designers to put up a simple management system whereby teachers who e-mail the site will be notified of any new changes by an automatic piece of software called a listserver.
This technology has been around for years, decades even. Quite simply all anyone has to do is e-mail the site saying they want to join its notification list and an automatic message sends out any updates in response, hopefully, on a regular basis.
As yet there is no listserver and no notification software.
It really isn't hard to do - our little one form entry primary school has one and we make weekly updates - why can't the standards site?
So some of us are more than ready Professor Barber, so to quote your leader, I challenge you to open up access in this way...
