Anyway, in spite of the fact that I've done it before and in spite of the fact that I imagine local radio having hours and hours of airtime and only limited scope for playing Abba back-to-back I always feel rushed. Best to get a couple of thoughts written down and leave the rest to them.
So when they rang (to ask if I'd contribute to their discussion of the teaching crisis) I did. Here they are:
- teachers' lives will never improve until school data targets are driven by what individual pupils need and can achieve, rather than what makes schools look good;
- and that would actually make most pupils a lot happier, too.
You can hear me do it if you like.
