Education should be designed to prepare students for life, not simply academic subjects with precise, measurable, yet absurdly meaningless attainment targets. Students should be taught the necessary skills to thrive; skills which cannot be measured in end of term exams. If we must evaluate the performance of teachers we should measure how well their students are living in 5 or 10 years after graduating.
