Birmingham City Council's chief education officer Tim Brighouse has accused OFSTED chief inspector Chirs Woodhead of 'tinkering' with an OFSTED report to 'belittle' academic improvements in the city's schools, reports The Birmingham Post (p13).

The city's five GCSE pass rate at 16 has risen from 27% to 36%, which Prof Brighouse claims should be applauded. Instead, he has written to Mr Woodhead complaining about an OFSTED report which he claims contains 'spelling mistakes, grammatical errors and poor syntax' and which offers little praise.

Prof Brighouse has made it plain previously that he is against Mr Woodhead's opinion that failing schools should be named and shamed.
