Gove on school history debate on Radio 4

What a damp squib Andrew Marr’s 4 handed debate on school history on this morning’s radio show turned out to be. Gove was given such an easy ride. Nothing on why he backtracked so dramatically from the unteachable draft of February: nothing on why history is not taught to all to 16. He joked his way through without once being challenged. All he did concede was the need to look at different versions of events. So long as we preserve this, then we are safe from the rest of his lunatic ideas.
