Sir: I am astonished by your conclusion in respect of Key Stage 3 Standard Assessment Tasks (leading article, 18 March). The biggest pressure I face is not from militant teachers but from agitated parents. Far from being confused, I would suggest a majority of parents in this school want the whole bureaucratic nightmare to go away to enable us to carry on teaching and testing their children in our accepted professional manner.

Yours faithfully,



St Aidan's Church of England High School
