Ofsted head: 'Satisfactory' is a false designation


Ofsted, the schools inspectorate in England, is going to remove the "satisfactory" classification for schools because it says it can allow weak schools to continue to coast along.

Head of Ofsted Sir Michael Wilshaw explains the reasoning behind this.
