Snatching defeat from victory

How the Department for Education has managed to snatch defeat
from the jaws of victory.

Last summer NATRE reported that the revised Ofsted framework triggered a significant review of the curriculum in most schools, 23% of schools reported an increase in provision for RE.

However, looking at the posts advertised in the Times Educational Supplement, on Friday 27 May, just under 100 RE posts appeared, continuing the pattern of a buoyant recruitment season this year.
