Education monster Michael Gove is tightening his death grip on our education system and this week’s gem could have wide-reaching social effects.
He’s pledging 10-hour school days. Yes that’s right, more hours than most people work.
If you’ve never encountered a child before, their ability to sit, absorb and learn is limited. They have a threshold as we all do.
By the time half-term or school holidays arrive, children are already exhausted husks needing a recharge.
What about children spending quality bonding time with their parents? In from school, in the bath, ready for bed…see you at the weekend.
Yet another preposterous idea.
