Flightpaths – what?

Chrismcd53's blog

A little while ago I had a conversation with a colleague from another school who was describing the progress of a child. They spent twenty minutes or so talking about a flight path and the relative points progress, both up and down, the child had made. They were earnest, committed and passionate and after twenty minutes I hadn’t the faintest clue what they were talking about.

Clearly a lot of time had spent calculating this and I imagine a good number of staff meeting hours and PPA given over to feeding the spreadsheet or database that drove the system. But if it doesn’t actually make any sense or difference to the teacher or children concerned – why bother?

Could just be me, but wouldn’t some tea leaves be equally as useful and a lot less time consuming?
