Teaching in hundreds of secondary schools is not engaging enough, says this year’s report from the U.K. Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services, and Skills (OFSTED). The education-standards watchdog voiced “serious concern” that teaching standards were “no more than satisfactory” in 40% of schools nationwide, and it warns of a link between weak teaching and poor behavior, with disruption more likely to take place when pupils failed to be engaged by lessons. The report also highlighted that pupils from the poorest communities were four times more likely to be taught in inadequate schools than those from more affluent backgrounds.
