Yet another preposterous idea from the education monster

COMMENT: Health plan worth trying as we can’t go on like this

Have your say

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.
