Click here to vote in the Guardian Poll on SATS..

Suddenly the politicians are waking up to what teachers have been telling them for decades: SATS are bad for education.

The controversial key stage tests come to an end this week. Let the Guardian know whether you think the government should drop the exams altogether.

86.4% Yes
13.6% No

Poll closes in 2 days

Unlike telephone polls, the results aren't fixed and it costs nothing :)

That link did not work. Try this one:

http://www.guardian....16/sats.schools

87.1% Yes

When testing and league tables were introduced by the Tories, Labour opposed them. Once in power, Labour have extended their use. It is clear from the interviews with ministers that they have no understanding of what education is all about. Education ministers in Wales and Scotland were quick to remove SATs once they got independence from London.
