Gove’s gone! Yes, really Gove’s gone. Sacked. Such joy!

I think I’ll spend all day ringing the DfE to hear that delicious repeated confirmation that ‘Mr Gove doesn’t work here any more’. All bluster and puffed up self-importance, Gove has caused untold heartache in the last few years introducing incoherent curriculum changes all at once whilst ducking the key issues (exam board competition etc). His meddling with KS3 has scarcely left a mark, but the GCSE changes he forced on us will necessitate hours and hours of work on top of A level changes. What he has left then is a legacy of confusion. WE knew GCSE needed changing but in the context of a coherent 11-19 provision. Now the question is: can his successor possibly be worse?
