Schools in England are suffering from a culture of "casual acceptance" of classroom misbehaviour, the Ofsted chief inspector has warned.
Poor attitudes to education and low-level disruption in lessons are stopping pupils from learning and preventing the nation from moving up international league tables, according to Sir Michael Wilshaw.
In a speech today, Sir Michael is due to say that disruption and inattention has been tolerated for too long and that Ofsted will be cracking down on misbehaviour in schools.
Around 700,000 children are currently being taught in schools where behaviour is not at an acceptable level, figures suggest.
Sir Michael will say there is a "poverty expectation" in many schools that needs to be dealt with and the "poor attitudes to learning" in England are "a million miles away from the sort of cultures we see in some of the high-performing Asian countries".
The father of a baby who died amid a series of failings at Furness General Hospital has urged the health secretary to adopt a series of measures published in a damning report into the scandal.
James Titcombe, whose son Joshua died when he was nine days old, "welcomed" the "important" report, which he said could prevent future deaths if recommendations on "serious incidents" were implemented:
"I would say to Jeremy, 'please make sure the recommendations are implemented' because this report could actually change the learning from serious incidents in maternity."
An Alzheimer's scan which will be introduced on the NHS is a "big step forward", according to an industry expert.
However, Alzheimer's Society Chief Executive Jeremy Hughes warned the scan would not be immediately widely available.
"One hospital doing one scan today does not mean it is available across the NHS.
"And the biggest problem we have is still the fear that people have of dementia. They don't even go to the doctor to talk about it and we need to change that."

As Nelson Mandela's coffin was driven through the streets of Pretoria towards the nearby Union Buildings, people sang "Viva Mandela".
Mourners sang and threw flowers as Nelson Mandela's coffin was driven out of the military hospital in Pretoria en route to the Union Buildings, where the former South African President's body will lie in state for the next three days.
The former South African president's body will be viewed by citizens and selected international visitors and guests.
Offenders receiving a community sentence should not feel "like they have got off the hook", the justice minister has said.
Jeremy Wright defended the decision to implement specific punishments, like curfews and unpaid work, across all community service sentences.
– Justice minister Jeremy Wright
Hard-working taxpayers expect those convicted of committing crime to be punished accordingly.Victims must be confident that offenders will pay a price for their crimes, which is why we are toughening up community sentences.
Offenders should not leave court feeling like they have got off the hook after receiving a community sentence.
People have gathered outside the military hospital in Pretoria to see Nelson Mandela's coffin taken to the nearby Union Buildings, where his body will lie in state for three days.
Officials have invited mourners to line the route. Meanwhile a public memorial service in London today will remember the life of the anti-apartheid leader.
The service will be held at St Martin-in-the-Fields in Trafalgar Square from 10.30am at the request of the South African High Commission, feet away from the church.
