Out of curiosity I have just paid the £22 for a years worth of ISR. I don't need it now as I retired in June but thought I would see what was written and how schools that I had worked at, were portrayed. So, what did I learn?: That, on the whole it would be a very useful and informative tool to those seeking international jobs That, due to the ability to write without censor, there is probably an imbalance of negative reviews and positive reviews (with more negative than positive). That not all of the negative reviews are just people who have been spurned, lashing out. That. if you are relatively smart, you can work out which negative reviews are just whingeing from the above and those who are more balanced and accurate That it wasn't actually as negative as I had expected. That I wished I had paid my £22 in 2003 when I committed to a school in Egypt which turned out not to be as it was portrayed (as I wouldn't have accepted the position). That it is worth £22 I spent the morning writing reviews of the 3 schools I worked at and of 3 of the Headteachers/Principals I worked for. I like to think that I gave balanced and realistic reviews based, as much as possible, on fact. There was some criticism in my writing but there was also lots of positive comments as well. 2 of the 3 Principals reviews were wholly positive and the other was 50/50. Is there anybody out there who has paid for this service and as a result been able to make better decisions?
