The Simple View of Education or Education Policy for Dummies
Wadsworth, John
FORUM: for promoting 3-19 comprehensive education, v52 n2 p159-162 2010
In November 2009 the current Secretary of State for Education, Michael Gove, gave a speech at the Centre for Policy Studies in which he set out the Conservative Party's priorities for education. This article explores some of the proposals in his speech, with particular references to initial teacher education and his attraction to Nordic and US models, and suggests that he has a limited grasp of his subject and the potential cost of his proposals.
