Why is TES asking the questions?

    This is the American way of doing things. What happened to good old fashioned British debate?

    I believe the intent is to promote discussion on the education news items published by TES

    Proposition, Opposition and Debate from the floor?
    I think they amalgamated the last two in an attempt to liven things up

    I agree. It is just odd that TES asks questions. They lack imagination, passion and don't focus on what those on the chalkface are feeling. There are some days where only a handful of posts are made so I guess they are trying to stimulate interest. And failing.

    It's less effective as a tool to promote debate and discussion because the topics are taken from reports or are in the news in other ways. That does not necessarily reflect what posters wish to discuss and debate.

    It's felt a bit forced, but I do applaud the attempt to generate traffic.

    Because we already know what we think about the majority of topics as were are mostly time-served teachers. Therefore we are unlikely to start a thread saying something like "Is it time to scrap Ofsted?".

    Traffic has to be generated...
