    We built a corpus of over 100,000 Ofsted inspection reports for this work. There’s so much more to do with this data. For example, here’s an example of accent discrimination targeting the speech of young boys in an economically deprived area of Manchester.

    In this same document, Ofsted also rely on Hart & Risley's 1995 study which (re)normalised the myth of the 'word gap' - a racist ideology which frames the speech of low-income, racialised families as deficient and in need of emergency remediation.

    Social justice can only be achieved through radical restructuring and the redistribution of power. Ofsted, meanwhile, want schools to think that 'social justice' is about giving marginalised students more vocabulary and teaching colonial histories geared around 'great works'.

  • Managing the markload

    There is no way to dress it up - marking is and will always be one of the biggest burdens in teaching. The other things like planning, training, meetings and emails all push themselves to the top of the to-do list - their turnarounds are short and they can’t be left.

    It has been a tough term for Ofsted. Almost daily, it's been criticized by the media for being out of touch with teachers, ignoring the hard realities for schools dealing with Covid-19, and downgrading schools in one fell swoop. But is it listening to our calls for reform?
