New KS3 history NC for 2014 has arrived. No change

As expected the government has not listened to any of the advice on the second consultation. My guess is that the type was already set and the presses ready to roll. At least there is not more change to accommodate. So we press ahead with the Magnificent 7 modules which we might call:
Medieval
Early Modern
Industrial Britain
20C world
Thematic
Local
World Study

Isn’t this pretty much where we started? Not so much U -turn as the full 360 degrees! Gove’s greatest triumph may well have been his weakness in not pushing his disastrous reforms through to legislation. How do you increase rigour in KS3 history? Leave well alone!
