Tom Bennet's blog: So far I've found one newspaper that substantially reported the view that the documents might be fake; it also carried a denial by one of the alleged authors, who said it was "a malicious fabrication and completely untrue".
First the allegation, then the investigation. By which point the damage is done. The Department for Education's Extremist Unit has investigated and concluded that it isn't worth a police investigation. Now the National Association of Head Teachers is investigating it in conjunction with the police, the DfE and Birmingham City Council. Liam Byrne, the local MP, is involved, claiming to have been in urgent talks with Ofsted and Michael Gove about it.
And good luck to them. I only hope that in the hunt for the truth, better questions are asked than the way the media have covered this so far. Education has enough to deal with, without witch hunts.
