    Michael Gove

    http://www.theguardian.com/education/2014/may/25/mockingbird-mice-and-men-axed-michael-gove-gcse In the last week, 3 people have mentioned to me just how much they despise Michael Gove and what he is doing to education. Then this big furore erupted today. As usual, I think 'Thank heaven he has nothing to do with Scottish Education...' but then after a wee bit of thought we don't do much different up here. Scottish texts are favoured, a narrow selection of certain texts are habitually studied in secondary schools and this year, more than any other year, I sat with pupils doing exams looking for the question that best suited their chosen text explicitly and not considering others. Single text, single poem. Time in the curriculum doesn't allow for a broader look or study at novels and poems. It doesn't allow for autonomy, for the pupils' choice. It's a crying shame. Is Gove actually saying 'let's look at other books?' Is he so wrong? Don't get me wrong, I think he's a tosspot but about this? I don't know.
