School accountability ‘does more harm than good’, but will things ever change?

    ‘A commission of experts has warned that the current system of school accountability is not working.

    Tes has revealed today that the new Accountability Commission led by the NAHT headteachers union has found that league tables and targets and Ofsted inspections are driving teachers out of the profession and holding back improvement.

    There are six ways England’s current school accountability system is doing more harm than good, according to the new report. You can read them here.

    Do you agree with the report? Do you think there are other ways that the accountability system is harming education? Do you think the way schools are held to account will ever change? What would it mean to you if there was no accountability system, would it change the way you teach and view the job?

    It is completely obvious to everyone except those administering the accountability.

    No big shock here. Some heads didnt get together and argue for theur teachers. Some refuse still to teach themselves. Why become a teacher when your boss might not be part of the team or support teachers?

    Many Heads and SMTs see their roles as policing their staffs, not managing them.
