Have Ofsted blown it all apart?

Just watched Newsnight and in amongst the speedy presentation and jargon, am I right in thinking that Ofted's report on English has blamed the narrowing of the curriculum to fit the tests and a lack of policy on encouraging children to love reading for a plateau in standards?

Did I imagine that?

And then the new Ofsted boss comes on and goes on and on and on about phonics and dodges what his own inspectors are telling them?!

I had better buy their report and mark it with highlighter pen in the morning...
