Chief Inspector's grasp of statistics

Discussion in 'English' started by merry050, Mar 15, 2012.

  1. In a BBC interview yesterday, the new (still wet behind the ears?) Chief Inspector said that (with reference to literacy) "one in five children in primary schools, at the age of eleven, are leaving primary schools without the national average..." (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/education-17368311).
    If we get them up to the national average, will they reach the new national average?
    Please can we have an inspector who understands basic maths/statistics?
  2. Unsurprising when Ofsted believes it is possible to make 'all schools better than average'
  3. My other worry is that he has also said that all the ill in schools are down to teachers...
