Algorithms to identify failing schools.

Algorithms to identify failing schools.

Plans to use algorithms to identify failing schools have been criticised by the National Association of Head Teachers.

A data science unit, part-owned by the UK government, has been training algorithms to rate schools, using machine learning - a form of AI.

It plans to work with England education watchdog Ofsted to help prioritise inspections.

The NAHT said effective inspection of schools should not be based on data.

"We need to move away from a data-led approach to school inspection," the union said in a statement.
