“Inspiring” maths teachers needed.

According to Polly Curtis, education editor of The Guardian, an Ofsted report out yesterday – the 19 Sept –  says that  nearly half of all maths lessons are not good enough. And why is that?
It appears that ”even though more pupils are getting qualifications, uninspiring teaching means they often lack understanding of mathematical concepts” 

The Government’s official body for inspecting schools, says while teachers are doing exactly what the government expects of them, they are failing anyway. Seemingly many of them are now “uninspiring”. I wonder how they measure just how inspiring a teacher is?
You could not make it up, could you? Apparently you can if you work for this govenment.
