No more CVA, another death nail for Nationals?

Discussion in 'Computing and ICT' started by jweb2k, Jun 4, 2011.

  1. Very true, but abolishing CVA without doing away with league tables too is poor. Keep or remove both.

    Vimes, I assume you are in a good postcode.
     
  3. I teach in one of the largest comprehensive schools in the
    country; my postcode is average, thanks for asking.
    I don't think setting people targets based on the colour of their
    skin is acceptable (which CVA does), and I don't see how abolishing
    CVA promotes eton et al to be "one of the best schools in the
    country"; a position I wasn't aware it had apparently relinquished at some time in the past.

    Read into this and you'll find that increasingly it's white working classes that are 'underperforming'.

    It's sad though that we even have to have these debates. The whole OCR / CVA game is
    a complete joke. We are robbing the countries future.

    The emprors new clothes anyone.

    I think you will find you are quoting the wrong person

    No they were loved, along with gnvq because they pushed up the 5 A*-C %
     
  8. The 5A*-C%and VA are hardly unrelated. Ofsted reports invariably contain sentences such as "students arrive with performance in line with national averages" and "achieve above national average performance by the end of KS4" i.e. VA is being measured, along with capped/uncapped average point scores and a host of other measures.
