No more judgments on teaching?

    So according to the white paper released today there are moves to remove judgments on teaching and learning from Ofsted reports.

    Is this a good or a bad thing?

    Well I think Scintillant has highlighted a few times how lesson judgements are incorrect 50% of the time, being partial to observer bias.

    Removing them from reports is just an admission of the ongoing failure of Ofsted and the data-mindset that delusionally supposes all things can be measured.

    Of course, it won't stop the most damaging aspect, the internal school judgements on performance used for pay progression. That scandal will go on, largely ignored as it serves the purposes of politicians and media.[i.e. teachers are all lazy and don't deserve the money].
