Lies, More Lies and Ofqual

Glenis Stacey, leader of Ofqual (GCSE Exam Regulator) is living proof that Ofqual is unfit for purpose, and worse, that it is a corrupt organisation. Hiding behind a scurrilous attack on the professionalism of teachers, suggesting that they marked controlled assessments too generously to deliberately inflate coursework grades and increase the number of C grades, this final report seeks to deflect criticism of its unprincipled fixing of grade boundaries. Students, parents and teachers are justifiably outraged at Ofqual’s alteration of grade boundaries during the same academic year. The ‘adjustments’ which have affected the futures of thousands of youngsters are a result of political interference by government. Students and teachers must not be too successful because it runs counter to government’s message that our education system is crap, while they continue to cut education spending and reduce the number of students attending university. How many more attacks on teachers and our country’s youth will we tolerate?
