Quiz the schools inspector
England's schools inspectorate, Ofsted, is supposed to have a friendlier new face under chief inspector, Mike Tomlinson - "working with teachers, rather than against them".

Mr Tomlinson's remit is wider than just inspecting individual schools and colleges. As overseer of education standards, he is about to report on how the national numeracy and literacy strategies are working out, for instance.

As a teacher, is that how you see it? Should there be less frequent inspections? As a parent, do you want a watchdog that doesn't bark? Do you trust its judgments?

Now you have the chance to question the man himself. he will be joining us for a live forum on Tuesday at 1345 GMT.
