DfE attacks standards collaborators

Filed under: Education,Policy,Standards — lenand @ 1:42 pm

Has anybody else read this DfE summary report?  It seems to discredit the work achieved by the SIF Association in favour of centrally mandated stuff (not standards arrived at via consultation of all interested parties). Schools do not appear as a tier in the DfE strategic model.  How can you make standards for interoperability in Schools without including schools as stakeholders?

I believe it was written by Cap Gemini – and guess what – they recommend outsourcing and a national spine of children’s data. The demise of Becta may make it easier for the recommendations to be accepted.  Perhaps DfE has already decided that the Information Standards Board knows best.  But will the ISB survive the cuts?

The SIF Association should respond vigourously to some clearly inaccurate statements.
