NASUWT - 'Lets debate the 10% of useless OFSTED inspectors'

Responding to the comments made by the Chair of Ofsted, Zenna Atkins, that every school will have a useless teacher and that 10% of any workforce is underperforming, Chris Keates, General Secretary of the NASUWT, the largest teachers' union, said:

"Why is it that everyone thinks that teachers are fair game for kicking around and denigrating?

"Everyone seems to think they have a right to criticise teachers' performance and capability without a shred of evidence to substantiate their claims.

"However, on the basis of Ms Atkins comments there must, therefore, be 10% of Ofsted inspectors who are useless. Let's have a public debate about that."
