New blog on global rise of hyp-accountability

Wednesday, February 3rd, 2010

Well, there’s been a bit of a gap in these postings, caused by the serious distraction that is moving house, followed by the rather-less-stressful distraction of a holiday to recover from that. But I’m getting back on track now, and hope to be posting regularly.

That said, this first one of the year is just a link to a blog I’ve written on another site. I’ve written a piece for the NAHT on why publishing school test scores seems so attractive for politicians, including those in other countries, despite the problems that often follow for pupils. Read it here.

I’ve also been reading a fascinating book, not directly related to education, which I think has some interesting implications for the way schools (and other public services I guess) are now run. Watch this space for my next post on that.
