The Independent was reporting yesterday that a group of experts set up by the government is demanding 'tougher maths and science exams' at GCSE.
Graeme Paton has two pieces in the Telegraph: one on the 'social engineering' controversy, claiming that 'Labour's mission to "socially engineer" university admissions is built on flawed evidence, according to independent school leaders’; the other reports that Ofsted is claiming that Labour's schools reforms aren't working because of red tape. Amen to that!
And by the way, if you want to know how much the National Strategies – those would be the ones they are scrapping from next year - have cost since 1997, the figure Paton gives is £2.5 billion for primaries and £2 billion for secondaries. What a waste of taxpayers money!
