Teachers call for Ofsted boycott

Teachers at the National Union of Teachers annual conference in Liverpool have called for a boycott of school inspections as they warned they had no confidence in Ofsted chief Sir Michael Wilshaw.

Liam Conway, an NUT member from central Nottinghamshire said:

Good teachers are literally dropping like flies because of Ofsted. We owe it to all of our teachers who are literally being torn to bits by Education Secretary Michael Gove and Sir Michael Wilshaw and their band of crocodiles and lions.

The union must do more to work out a way to boycott Ofsted. It is time to stop hiding behind legal impediments.
