Clare Jarmy's piece 'Why good teachers are above standards' was published in the TES, she writes: "I think, however, that a more fundamental issue is at stake. The very idea of teaching standards reduces a complex practice to something too simple: a set of criteria to meet; ticks in boxes and evidence in folders. In this reduction, this boiling down of what it is to be a teacher, something very important gets lost." (Subscription needed to view article on TES website)
