I am neither for nor against national standards. I am however concerned about how the information will be represented and quite frankly how much parents will bother reading. The Premier League tables have lots of data as illustrated above (and a great deal more not shown in the tables) but all you really focus on is the winners and losers. I have not got the time or inclination in this simple format to actually dig any deeper. If parents do the same for school league tables then all schools will suffer, both those with declining rolls and those with increased rolls… then maybe zoning to limit movement….
He who dares to teach must never cease to learn.John Cotton Dana (1856–1929)
