Should the chairman of Ofsted resign??
The clamour is growing for David Hoare, chairman of Ofsted to resign following his comments last week that he would like the next chief inspector of Ofsted to be a non-teacher. Many senior colleagues feel put out and sidelined by his comments on the matter.
The latest outburst comes only weeks after he was heavily criticised for his comments regarding the Isle of White. Mr Hoare stated ” that the Isle of White was like a “ghetto” that suffered from “inbreeding”. He has since issued a full apology to the Isle of White and it’s residents.
However the biggest problem appears to be his comments on having a non-teaching chief inspector of Ofsted. Senior sources and colleagues are said to feel undermined and let down by his comments which have caused a division and have called into question their professional expertise.
