Just a short observation that Michael Gove is attacking what he calls the “forces of conservatism” in writing to some Labour-led councils in the East Midlands where standards are lower than he thinks they ought to be. Remind me which party he is in? He has not written to any Labour-controlled councils, as far as I know, where standards are higher than they ought to be, nor to any Conservative-controlled councils where the standards are lower, and where the forces of conservatism might not be to blame? As he is not the queen, whetever he thinks, he can have his face upside down whilst he has a little think about whether to join the Labour Party….

Does the man not read my blog? How will he get on?


About Huw Humphreys

I am a headteacher in the city of Milton Keynes, where I have been since April 2011, looking to make education effective for the whole child and keeping a distant relationship with the powers that be and their narrowing approach to education... but most of all I am looking to find out what it means to be both a follower of Jesus Christ and a passionate educator in the midst of an unsettled community. I am also a part time musician, part time linguist and lover of history and literature...committed both to freedom to learn and depth of learning for all our children. The views on this blog are all my own, and not in any way those of the school I lead!
