If you were to believe anybody's verdict on the British educational system, it would be Chris Woodhead, who has worked for the last thirty years in British education, the last six years as Chief Inspector for Schools within OFSTED, the Office for Standards in Education. His verdict on the state of British education is not necessarily favourable and I enjoyed reading his devastating remarks on trendy teaching methods, grade inflation or short-sighted measures taken by politicians only to achieve immediate results. Woodhead pleads for more private initiative in establishing independent schools, based on the model of so-called charter schools, recently introduced in Arizona. These are schools funded by the state, but which operate outside the state bureaucracy.
Much of Woodhead's courageous criticism on British schools would also apply to our German schools.
