Zenna Atkins, the chairman of the Office for Standards in Education (Ofsted), has raised some eyebrows by saying that, “every school should have a useless teacher.” She stresses that schools shouldn’t seek out or tolerate bad teaching, but thinks bad teachers provide a valuable life-lesson. From the article: “… on Sunday Ms Atkins told the BBC that schools needed to reflect society, especially at primary level. ‘In society there are people you don’t like, there are people who are incompetent and there are often people above you in authority who you think are incompetent, and learning that ability to deal with that and, actually surviving that environment can be an advantage.’”
