No problem, go online “Now don’t get me wrong, I’m a fan of digital and online… [but] when I hear of pushing customers to channel shift, I will recount this miserable tale and continue to champion the frontline services…” Kate Bentham explains why online isn’t always the answer. Posted in April by Kate Bentham at Bentham Towers #22 Spend to offend (the outsourcing of probation) Richard Johnson writing on Buying QP argues that despite the rhetoric about a “rehabilitation revolution”, the outsourcing of probation… “has the potential to deliver more efficient and effective probation services but is unlikely to have a significant impact on recidivism rates.” Posted in June by Richard Johnson at Buying Quality Performance #23 Why teachers leave “People will argue that every professional needs to consider their family but they don’t all leave their jobs – what makes teachers different? Simple: our job’s lack of flexibility.” Laura McInerney looks at why teachers leave the profession – and why the issue of 190 days matters. Posted in April by Laura McInerney #24 Who’s afraid of lesson observations? “Ask any teacher for their experience of summative observations, and it’s likely their answer will involve various expletives.” Joe Kirby collates what teachers across the education blogosphere are saying about the current system of lesson observations and outlines four problems with it. Posted in August by Joe Kirby at Pragmatic Education #25 The scourge of British policing “…the trouble and public confidence issues with the Met are NOT down to the brave, selfless and dedicated officers striving to keep Londoners safe each day. It is not even down to their leaders further up the ladder. The issues come from only two directions.” Mr Sherlock points the blame at Government cuts and reforms, and the British press. Posted in February by Mr Sherlock’s Blog #26 If borrowing is up, but services are being cut… where is our money going? “It is time to end this parasitic relationship where the state is ever more simply the vehicle by which the few are delivered the profits of the endeavours of the many.” Scriptonite examines where all the money is going. Posted in March by Scriptonite #27 How does OFSTED help failing schools? “With performance management systems in my school becoming more and more related to lesson grades, what else can a teacher do but ‘play the game’?” Tessa Matthews argues that the power Ofsted has can be extremely dangerous for failing schools.

But there are a lot of people who will not be helped by this.” Richard Hutton counts the cost of austerity and welfare reforms. Posted in March by Richard Hutton at A New Place of Exile #29 Bedroom Tax – it won’t create homelessness but the OBC will – 8 times as much “…the nightmare scenario …above gets worse every year with more families evicted, more homelessness and more public purse cost to go with that human misery.” Joe Halewood explains why the overall benefit cap is far worse than the bedroom tax.

Fuck that shit “They have ruined many lives already, and the doors have been thrown open for them to ruin more lives in new, different ways.” Stavvers takes issue with G4S running rape support services.
