After seeing the massive grade inflation last year why would anyone trust teacher assessed grades? And while most will be graded too generously, those who teachers dislike will pay dearly. I've seen it happen!

There's still time to reinstate fair and impartial external exams. Marking to the curve allows for the fact there kids have had less teaching. This is the ONLY decent, honest thing to do.
Well done on displaying your stupidity so openly. Removed

If history tells us anything it is that you can't trust teachers to mark their own work.

Inflated grades are guaranteed,
I doubt your room temperature IQ can grasp how it's being actually done.

It's not what your limited intellect is telling you.

Wishful thinking, government. Some parents (most likely pushy middle-class types who tend to overestimate their children’s brilliance) will undoubtedly try to put pressure on schools/teachers. In their minds they will only be trying to make sure their little darlings are treated fairly, but it will still be pressure. I wish the teachers the best of luck; tough times ahead... Removed

I was a teacher, working in deprived areas, and whilst there are some parents who over-estimate the ability of their son or daughter, a much worse problem is that group of parents who take no interest in education and will not cooperate with the school. I came across many of these.

This has been the hardest work year ever, working from home has been very difficult, extremely difficult. Everything takes twice as long. I'm in the Utilities industry and am an "essential worker". Teachers (and NHS workers) have done an unbelievable job, but they aren't on heir own. I can't justify giving my excellent staff a rise last year nor this, nor myself. Sorry, its the times we're in

"At least they (teachers) don’t get physically attacked like other key workers eh"

That`s not true. Assaults on teachers happen inside schools but the right wing press won`t report it.
