This week's poll asks:
Do you support the publication of National Standards data?
*Very much so, even though it is only the first year, the data is crude, & produced largely unwillingly. It should be seen as the first shot in a, necessary, campaign to break the stranglehold of (teachers) unions & academia on education - a sinister (left-hand) stranglehold built up over the last 4 decades. Why shouldn't teachers be evaluated, held accountable, paid according to evaluated worth/merit, exactly the same as the rest of us? In my day it was said, "if you can't do it, then you go & teach it". In spades, doubled, these days. Dave
*Yes with the comment that 5 year olds should not be included in this list..it should be at age 6..when some knowledge should have taken place in their brains! Jane
*1. But only for the Private consumption of Pupils,Parents, Teachers and Authorities.
2. There must be National Standards to progress Education. Frederick
*Let us be open to standards of the different schools. Brian
