Who's shagging who here?

National standards data provided by schools is too "ropey" to show parents how well a school is doing in reading, writing and maths and may not be released this year

it's extremely patchy and in different formats and that will make it very difficult to interpret - but over time the Government hopes it will be more consistent because the purpose of having information is to give parents a better sense of how their school is performing

Ummm, Mr Key, you're the government of the day. Or is it the teacher unions?

If the data is 'ropey, in different formats, of patchy content", surely the government should be defining the minimum standards required, not letting union stiffs dictate the order of the day.

Indeed, one wonders who is being screwed over here.
