'Satisfactory' grade for schools to be replaced

The government's new chief inspector of schools for England, Sir Michael Wilshaw, says he is getting rid of the "satisfactory" grade, because he believes too many schools are just coasting along.

The head of the education inspectorate, Ofsted, told BBC Breakfast he wants to replace the category with "requires improvement", which would entail more regular inspections.
