Makes perfect sense

Sorry, stoodents again. But this time I am just linking to Melanie Phillips's article in the Spectator. There are many times I disagree with Ms Phillips but on education none can better her. I am glad she quotes Professor Clive Bloom who says quite firmly that the rot set in when first-class polytechnics, which many of them were, became tenth rate universities. I like to remind various ToryBoys of that little fact. And who was Prime Minister then? Step forward John Major. Mind you, things went from bad to worse after that.

  1. I always thought that Rutlish Grammar School had a lot to answer for. The geography department taught Major that Britain was at the heart of Europe.
