Lies, damned lies and Ofsted's pseudostatistics

Join teachers, parents, governors and students at this public forum hosted by Nottingham City National Union of Teachers and supported by the Stand Up For Education Coalition and the UCU at the University of Nottingham to discuss Ofsted’s use of statistical data and the political project behind it. Professor Philip Moriarty—a school governor in Nottingham—recently exposed Ofsted’s ‘pseudostatistics’ and Kevin Courtney has been leading national efforts to bring Ofsted to account.

    School kids question Harry about his youth and how it differed from theirs in a radio phone in on 5 live. Makes for fascinating listening. At one point Harry, who started work as a barrow boy at 7 years old, says he 'never had a childhood'.

    "Today it is 2014 and I am 91 – old by anyone’s standards. I should be able to look back and see great social progress since I was born. But I don’t. Despite the huge strides Britain made towards equality and security, since the start of the 21st century I have seen Britain and the rest of the western world slip back to a society that reminds me of my boyhood."
