BBC News - Ofsted: Literacy progress has stalled, chief inspector says
Sometimes I think that the Sun front page and the BBC education website employ someone with the same mentality.
Just because someone at the top open their mouth doesn't mean its a good idea to:
A. Repeat what they say, especially "statistics" (which in 94.8% of cases have been interpreted to fit the words used)
B. Do a nice pix and mix on quotes
Progress has stalled - of course its bloody stalled - if you put a gun to the head of the childrens favourite pet and threatened to shoot if they didn't do better, it wouldn't get you anywhere as as we've reached the end of the road in terms of results at KS2 - everyone is getting the best score that they can. :(
