The most recent quote attributed to Kevin Courtney came from an article called Two in five Sats pupils fail 3Rs as critics say schools are still not teaching new system properly: “Today's results…tell 39 per cent of 11 year olds that they have not reached 'the expected standard' for their age group and are not ready to begin secondary education. This demoralising situation says less about the efforts of teachers and pupils than about the deep flaws of our current system.
