The head of the right-wing think tank Civitas has said that any suggestion the Education Secretary Michael Gove is directing criticism of Ofsted is misguided:
The idea that Michael Gove is in any way directing our criticism of Ofsted is well wide of the mark.
We have had serious misgivings about Ofsted for many years, driven by the testimony of teachers and their concern for school standards.
The fact is, whatever Sir Michael Wilshaw's intentions, we know schools that would like to innovate are scared to do so because of the misguided notions of many Ofsted inspectors.
It would not be in Michael Gove's power to 'call off' our criticism whether he wanted to or not.
