Gove - evangelical in a hurry

Further to my post about the danger that is Michael Gove, he told a meeting of a handful of secondary head teachers that he was 'evangelical' about bringing the market to education. 'The days of local authorities are numbered.... I've only got two or three years to deliver on this and I will not be diverted from my path.'

Be afraid. Be very afraid.

"I've only got two or three years to deliver on this"

interesting comment, is he expecting the coalition to fall apart then and the Tories lose the next election or at least not get anything through in two years ?

when someone uses the word 'evangelical' you just know this means that common sense goes out of the window, because as we have seen no school really wants the extra responsibility.

It seems schools want to have a certain amount of central control, why should a school worry about trying to fund special needs for example ?
