Britain’s National Association of Head Teachers (NAHT) is criticizing the government’s plan to use artificial intelligence in rating schools and prioritizing inspections, a system which the body claims is reasonably opaque.

The union recently released a statement calling on the authorities to steer away from data-led approach and to make the assessment process transparent enough for schools to learn and benefit from it, writes Fanatical Futurist.

Michael Sanders, who has authored a report that details how AI would work in rating the schools, said algorithms are being tailored in collaboration with Ofsted, the U.K.’s education watchdog, notes the BBC.
