While everyone can accept that Becta did not get everything right, many are reluctant to be critical. They argue that:
- the good things that Becta did generally outweighed the bad;
- where things went wrong, Becta should be forgiven because it’s heart was in the right place;
- now that Becta has disappeared, it is time to let bygones be bygones;
- and in any case, no-one should rock the boat because internal disagreement within the ed-tech community may endanger the prospect of future funding.
