Remove Michael Gove as Secretary of State for Education

Discussion in 'Supply teaching' started by julieAndrews, Jan 27, 2012.

  1. I saw this and thought people might be interested to sign this
    It is believed by many teachers that Michael Gove is not up to the task
    of Secretary of State for Education. His strategies to 'improve'
    education in Britain are based on his own narrow minded ideology and he
    refuses to accept that his plans will cripple the education system in
    Britain. He consistently ignores warnings from teachers regarding
    Acadamies and Free Schools which will be able to employ non-qualified
    people to teach our children. He claims that Academies are being created
    to allow schools more freedom when in fact the Academies programme
    results in schools being controlled by central government. This man is a
    liability to all children and young people in this country and must be
    removed as Secretary of State with immediate effect.
  2. I think he's on the right track regarding terminal assessments and a move towards only having one examination board per subject (long overdue). Generally, I support most of his ideas.

    However, I doubt he will win many supporters for his plan to lengthen teaching hours and reduce the school holidays.
  3. He will go in the next reshuffle. He has been a disaster, even by ConDem standards.
  4. Over 3000 signatures so far!
