Quote of the day 16th July 2014

"We need to find language which enables us to talk about improving education without it being presented as an attack on teachers."

(Lord Chris Patten, then an MP and a minister - if memory serves, an education  minister.

I was reminded of this comment and similar opinions expressed by other past education ministers such as John MacGregor when I read the flood of comments about Michael Gove on his being moved from Education to be Chief Whip.

Plus ca change, plus c'est la meme chose ...)
