I was told today that from September, the satisfactory grade for lesson obs and ofsted inspections, is changing to "needs improvment." I think this is appalling, and we should all go on strike about it. I feel hounded all the time, and am sick of being told how rubbish teachers are. If they don't like how we teach then why give us the qualification? We are supposed to be professionals, not school children ourselves. Also,being in the classroom is getting harder and harder with all the range of abilities in one class. Why can't the government see that having sen,statemented children, eal, new to england children (with no english) and gifted and talented in one class just doesn't work! It's not the teaching that needs improvement it's the whole flipping system.
