Is OFSTED King of the Hokey Cokey?

SchoolsWeek reports that Sean Harford, Ofsted’s national director of education, has said Ofsted would increasingly look for evidence of “strategic decision-making” in a school’s curriculum, something that was likely to form part of a new common inspection framework in September 2019.

The King said, "jump to the left!" "If you do not jump to the left we will put you out of a job and publicly humiliate you."

So we jumped to the left.

The King then said, "you jumped to the left! Why did you not see that jumping to the left would mean you were no longer going straight ahead?"

The people always knew that going straight ahead was the best direction to take.
The people would like to go straight ahead. We know it is right.

But, instead of just going straight ahead, we wanted the King to tell us to go straight ahead. So we waited for the instruction.

The King is always right, so jumping to the left cannot have been wrong.
So, the King said, "continue to jump to the left, but at the same time jump to the right".

The leaders of the people told their followers to jump to the left and to the right at the same time.

Long live the King!
