Sir Mick's Literacy laugh in!!!!!

Discussion in 'Headteachers' started by thrupp, Mar 14, 2012.

  1. Sir Michael says one in five children does not reach the level
    expected at the end of primary school - and that even those who do have
    no guarantee of going on to get a good GCSE pass in English.

    He points out that nearly half (45%) of those who achieved
    the expected standard (Level 4) did not get at least a grade C in GCSE
    English.
    Which is why standards must rise in Primary Schools..................
    I would ask what the hell is going on in secondary schools, with all their specialists.....?.
    Oh yes, they are just not very good at teaching, have very low expectations and are bone idle, which is why they are still teaching year 6 lessons in year 8....
    Sir Mick, a secondary man, does what secondaries do blame primary..............
    When will someone shoot the elephant in the room and start brining these failing secondary institutions to book!!!!!!!!!

    You know perfectly well that achieving a level 4 does not mean the child 'should' get at least a C at GCSE. 'They' (Wilshire and all the nerks before and around him) just say it should.
    A child just scraping a level 4 will always find achieving a C at GCSE difficult.
    The irony, of course, is that if all those gaining L4 had gone on to achieve at least a C at GCSE, Gove, Wilshire et al would be frothing at the mouth even more about how peasy GCSE is.
     
  4. Mr Gove already thinks that, he's annouced things are going to chage

    Exactly. If only they'd link up what they say from one day to the next, eh?

     
  6. You know what Middlemarch, you just cannot have a good wind up anymore, unless it's about compromise agreements or some form of mundane management detail.
    I'm going to form me own academy and declare it a free school
    That or take over Ofsted, could be "and" I suppose!
