130 schools have shown no improvement for 10 years - Ofsted
More than 100 schools have not improved in the last 10 years, education watchdog Ofsted is expected to say.
The annual report by the Chief Inspector of Schools being released on Wednesday is expected to show that 130 schools have failed to record a "good" inspection since 2005.
It is reported that of the 20,000 schools in the country, 500 of those for children of primary age and 200 for over-11s have failed to make the grade.
However, 90% of all primary schools and nearly 80% of all secondary schools are rated good or outstanding, the report will say.
