England’s chief regulator has resigned in the wake of the exam grading chaos that has engulfed schools and universities.
Sally Collier was at the head of Ofqual – whose flawed exams algorithm was blamed for downgrading nearly forty percent of A-level results.
The regulator is overseen by the Education Secretary Gavin Williamson, who had failed to give Sally Collier his full support.
But her resignation comes as another policy u-turn on English schools is expected – this time on the issue of whether pupils should be required to wear face coverings.
Pupils in Leicester are amongst the first to go back in England – despite the city being subject to some local restrictions due to its Coronavirus rates.
