This one speaks the truth...

Blimey, things have come to a pretty pass when we have to rely on the Head Teacher of a private school to speak up about the impending mess that is "A Curriculum for Excellence" (or Mince as I described it in a recent post). So fair play to the head of "Smellies", as the good people of Edinburgh might refer to the august institution that is (deep breath) Daniel Stewart's and Melville College, for doing just that, as reported by the Scotsman newspaper here.

Apparently the outcomes for Mathematics are due for release... today? I'll believe it when I see it. Even better would be for the ACE people to fess up and actually make clear precisely how we are meant to contribute our thoughts and opinions, as (scandalously) there seems to be no actual mechanism for feedback at all just now. To be fair, this is entirely in keeping with the so-vague-it's-saying-next-to-nothing approach taken thus far by the whole enterprise.

This is all very worrying.
