    Statistics are always written in a negative light with regards to education. Surely the article should read that 72% of schools remain good or better?

    I'd be more interested in how many outstanding schools get downgraded. Certainly, from what I've seen around here, there seem to be a few with this grade that make you wonder if the inspector was on something when he visited the school.

    Three out of four schools stay good or improve is a more boring headline. How does that relate to good schools that have full inspections? My gut feeling is that this fits in with what I think ofsted's churn rate might be.

    When schools test children and they get poor results the teachers are blamed.

    When OfSTEd tests schools and they get poor results the teachers are blamed.

    Who cares what Ofsted say?

    They've been getting data and observations horribly wrong for many years. And damaging schools and teachers' careers on a bogus basis during that time.

    They were finished as a reputable organisation several years ago
