Is it important or does it just keep failed teachers in highly paid, worthless jobs ?

Now here’s an interesting comment which appeared in the week 2 review of my course (FutureLearn: Understanding Languages, Steve Wright, Tutor):

“start out with the idea of making the important measurable, and end up making the measurable important”

I really like this comment as it neatly encapsulates reality.
Unfortunately it also encapsulates Ofsted’s raison d’être.
