Have a look at the two responses below to the question of consultation. The first is from OFSTED:
The second is from the a Department for Education:
What is clear is that both OFSTED and the Department of Education are consulting more widely than their initial meetings with prominent bloggers, which can only be for the good.
I just wonder whether the Department’s decision to not have additional face to face sessions in favour of online consultation misses an opportunity as well as sizeable audience who, for what ever reason, would not engage in an online debate but would very much like to engage in meaningful discussion about the curriculum.
I just wonder whether it ok to chose a medium for consultation that will most likely leave out some – or is it just down to those who wouldn’t usually engage in online debate to change?
