EBC shelved.

After just 5 months Gove’s plans for EBC have been shelved in a momentous U-turn which has seen him having to row back on key aspects of his plans to reform GCSE. The one I am really angry about is his feeble caving in on the issue of one board per subject. Fearing falling foul of EU law he has now buckled. All he now claims he is going to do is to strengthen existing GCSEs and tighten coursework. This is a shambles. As I write, I am waiting for Gove to appear in Parliament, so I’ll let you know what he says if he can speak with his mouth full of umble pie.
