A Minister, not a Teacher

Interesting to note that Michael Gove will be the next Education Secretary in the UK.

Michael Gove

A fine party member he may be but he most certainly didn’t go to a state school – although his bio conveniently said he did at one point – and isn’t a former teacher – he’s a journo – so what right does he have to be responsible for education policy in England?

None. Nada. Zip. Zero.

Can we please have someone who actually represents the vast majority of pupils, students and teachers who work in state education? What about an educationalist with classroom experience for starters?
