Pride's Purge

(not satire – it’s the Tories!)

The education secretary Michael Gove has decided that unqualified teachers can teach our children.

And now even senior Tories are questioning the decision.

According to the Times Educational Supplement, Tory vice-chairman Richard Harrington has written to Gove expressing his “worry” that the policy will be used to ‘hire on the cheap’ and fill classrooms with unqualified teachers not because they have valuable experience but because they are lower cost.

Of course, this is all being said in private – in public Harrington supports Gove’s policy of dumbing down teaching  and we only know about Harrington’s concerns because someone leaked his letter.

God forbid that actual parents of actual children should be involved in the discussions.
