I worry more about the testing of 10/11 year-olds.

The UK SATS are beyond a joke - asking young kids about stupidly obtuse grammatical points and assuming that their mystified guesses somehow represent the quality of their schools.

Do you actually know what a modal verb is? I sure as hell don't and when various Ministers of Education have been asked similar questions, they haven't known the answers either. Somehow, though, a kid in Year 6 is deemed to be a failure for not guessing correctly (and by extension, his teacher is deemed a failure, too).

I increasingly imagine the Ministry to be run by a dysfunctional Dalek that constantly screams "MATRICULATE! MAT-RIC-U-LAAAAATE!"
Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect. - Mark Twain
