Day 2757: ETS and SATS – "Excuses for Testing Shambles" that "Send All Teachers Sobbing"


As if it wasn't bad enough that the Government have abandoned TEACHING the children of Britain in favour of having them drilled through so many centrally set tests that they might as well be turning them into a string of sausages…

Now, they can't even tell them whether they've passed or failed!

They admit that 29% of tests for 14 year olds are delayed but claim that they may take a little longer but the quality of the marking will be much higher.

Then the questions about quality are raised.

And then we discover instances where pupils papers are returned unmarked and the pupils are marked as ABSENT!

I'm pleased to say that ETS subsequently got the sack that they so richly deserved!
