School league tables are eagerly scanned by parents hoping to find the best school for their child, and by teachers hoping to see their school rise in the rankings. But do they tell parents what they need to know? Harvey Goldstein and George Leckie argue that league tables are not fit for that purpose, and say it is time that their publication should cease.
