HEAD TEACHERS’ ROUNDTABLE
Our local paper is carrying a story today that a group of headteachers, including at least two in my area are setting up a national organisation Headteachers’ Roundtable which has arisen out of ‘frustration with current government educational policy and the Labour opposition to it’.
Their areas of concern include (unsurprisingly) inspection,curriculum, examinations and accountability.
It doesn’t surprise me: having been a member of the Association of School and College Leaders (previously SHA ) for nearly thirty years I have never know such anger and frustration amongst headteachers.
I don’t know whether the group have a website yet but they have a twitter account (not my forte!) at @HeadsRoundtable,have set up a meeting with Stephen Twigg and are hoping to meet politicians from other parties.
