All change for British education. I just hope it's a good service.

I remember as an undergraduate listening to a discussion on GCSEs, Radio 4.  I was in Ireland, '88/'89; and it seemed to my inexperienced mind that British education was radical and forward-thinking.  Having spent twenty years in the system, however, ten as a Senior Manager, my thinking now is that the government should let it be.  There are too many changes, repetitions and confusions.  Teachers then, I gave up in 2011, have my sympathies as they prepare for another autumn of initiatives.  It should surely be possible to have a system that is simple, enduring and recognisable.  Ross Morrison McGill suggests that that is not the case as yet.
