Headteachers are cutting staff, courses and trips – so it doesn’t add up that their budgets have increased
Are you a fan of BBC’s Question Time? I always look forward to seeing education ministers trying to justify policies on that show. I saw you on there a short while ago and found myself wondering if you had watched your predecessors facing the questions before you.
I have a feeling that the programme has proved something of a graveyard for you folks. Michael Gove waved his hands at Emily Thornberry while saying at her, “Yadda, yadda, yadda”, and he was removed from office for being “toxic”. Nicky Morgan, usually a confident and fluent person, seemed to freeze and was dropped not long after. And then Justine Greening seemed unwilling or unable to justify what she had been asked to say, and sure enough, she was soon gone too. Is it that you think the live audience is a sort of proxy parents’ evening, and trying to persuade us is much harder than chatting on the sofa with Andrew Marr?
