Michael Gove is now the justice secretary, but was education secretary when the decision was taken to raise the school leaving age. I can't imagine in his new role he would be inclined to do nothing about it if young people aren't doing as he intended.
I understand he is in favour of capital punishment.
Most people are in favour of capital punishment according to most opinion polls but the majority is reducing.But would you believe in opinion polls?
Michael Gove seems to know what he is doing backing off on the Human Rights Act abolition until he gets the complicated details right.The new education secretary is disappointing and Michael Gove will be seen in time as a great Education Secretary.History is the best judge.
Human beings have not got more intelligent neither have there offspring and when you see the grade inflation at all levels from SATS,GCSE's, A levels to the number of first class degrees being awarded you realise the truth.Any reforming politician has to deal with the vested interests in the area he wants to change.There is nothing wrong in believing in excellence and wanting the best for each child without the smoke and mirrors we are constantly presented with.Maybe we should hang any teachers who disagreed with his changes.
North Korea here we come.
Maybe we should poison any dissenters Russia here we come.
