GCSE “u-turn”

Andrew Haldenby appeared on Radio 4’s The World Tonight yesterday to discuss the Government’s “u-turn” on GCSEs.
Andrew argued that the decision, and also the announcement of a renewed National Curriculum, was against the “spirit” of the Government’s reforms which is to “take government out of the education system and to give power to schools and to parents” (The World Tonight, 13.30).
