    It's always nice to get a lecture on the "UK education system" from someone who doesn't even know the basics.

    The MAJOR problems with England's STATE education systems at the moment are ideological political interference and incompetence, school management's fear of their own masters, league tables, which don't allow for social backgrounds or catchment, Austerity cuts to school budgets and household incomes for many poorer homes.
    Anything else is probably as a result of, or compounded by the above, ideology, propaganda and smokescreens or just plain ******.

    Like the fact that the UK doesn't have an education system. It has four education systems, one of which has a completely different system of exams that Getling has never taught or tutored but still somehow feels able to comment on. And when he gets called out on this he goes selectively blind.
