The Plastic Hippo has turned out one of his best posts yet, and that’s saying something. This is pointed, prescient and precise. I have yet to meet anyone at all in the field of education who thinks that Gove is doing a good job. This government seem hell-bent on bombing the education of the working class right back to the fifties, and are trying everything from fake ‘apprenticeships’ in no-longer extant manufacturing (Youth Opportunities by any other name) to the £9,000 student fees designed to scare the poor from a decent higher education.
I lived through Tatcherism. One thing I’ll say for the old crone is that you knew she hated you and what you stood for. This government haven’t even got the decency to face us down. Not on education, not on welfare, not on cuts. Quite simply, they are a disgrace.
Read this and be angry, very angry indeed.
