More than half of all secondary schools are failing to provide children with a good education, a new report claims today.
Chief schools inspector Christine Gilbert - who published her annual document today - said the failure of hundreds of secondary schools to deliver the quality expected by parents was the "greatest challenge" facing the education system.
Ofsted said that in 51 per cent of comprehensives, standards of teaching and achievement were satisfactory at best. In comments that will ratchet up the pressure on the Government over its education record, Ms Gilbert declared: "Satisfactory can never be good enough." .......
