. . . attainment before CfE was implemented, and after. . . . attainment in your own subject before CfE was implemented, and after. . . . attainment in your own school before CfE was implemented, and after. . . . basic reading, writing and arithmetic skills before CfE was implemented, and after. . . . your workload before CfE was implemented, and after. Now think of the hours you work now, and your overall workload. Now think of the hours and overall workload of every teacher in the country, in every school in the land. My question is: has the implementation of CfE really been worth it? If all teachers' workload has increased, say, by around only 10%, has attainment risen by the same amount? If it had then I would be the first to admit CfE was a resounding success. I would still moan about the increase in hours (and remember, 10% is only 3.5 hours!) but would judge that against the equivalent rise in attainment and probably think CfE was "a good thing". But despite the huge increase in workload, the huge amount of effort put in with minimum support, there has been no improvement in attainment at all. Conclusion? CfE is a waste of time.
