    Andreas Schleicher has given a glowing review of the Michaela Community School. However, he wouldn’t want to send his own children there:

    ‘A secondary dubbed the UK's "strictest school" has been given a glowing report from the man in charge of the Pisa international education rankings.

    Andreas Schleicher published his blog on the Michaela Community School today and presented the north London secondary – which has attracted controversy for an uncompromising approach to discipline – as an example of "teacher-directed instruction".

    "In every classroom that I observed, teachers made learning goals explicit, structured their lessons clearly and asked engaging questions that stimulated higher-order thinking," the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development official behind the Programme for International Student Assessment wrote.’


    Are you surprised by the review?
