BBC Watch

An article posted today on the BBC News website – ‘Schools ‘got better’ under Blair’ – clearly shows how they pander to the Establishment.


Where the article should focus on Professor Alan Smither’s call for an independent school review body to establish objectively whether students are progressing, instead it chooses a headline favourable to the Government. In response we have created more suitable headlines of our own:

‘School assessment plagued by politicised vested interests’
‘Top Government advisor calls for urgent reform’
‘BBC not objective’
‘Independent school assessment needed’

Let’s leave the last word and the real news to Professor Smithers:

“Test and examination scores have gone up, but the monitoring has been largely under government control and it has had a vested interest in the results.”
