Exams systems ‘diseased’ and ‘almost corrupt’
Headline of a piece by Hannah Richardson on the BBC education & family news website.
England’s exam system is “diseased” and “almost corrupt”, says a former government adviser in a book on Labour’s education policy.
A former director at the Qualifications and Curriculum Authority, Mick Waters, says exam boards are conniving in the dumbing-down of school exams.
He also claims the boards profit from textbooks that help teachers with the answers to their own exam questions.
Exam regulator Ofqual said it would investigate claims of impropriety.
Not having read that book, nor at £25 for a paperback likely to do so, Malcolm has no intention of attempting a review or a commentary.
He came close to doing so. Instead, he copied, cut and pasted (so it might reappear later)
Just let his title here suffice.
