Headteachers ‘losing confidence in A-levels’

close

Warning: This post was published more than 12 years ago.

I keep old posts on the site because sometimes it's interesting to read old content. Not everything that is old is bad. Also, I think people might be interested to track how my views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured!

But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views might have changed in the 12 years since I wrote this post.
  • This post might use language in ways which I would now consider inappropriate or offensive.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.

Many thanks for your understanding.

The Guardian reports that:

Last week Mr Blair said that ministers were designing a stronger option for post-16 education to make sure that all pupils who did not want to pursue an academic education could access vocational training.

If this government hadn’t messed about with the exam system (and every other system come to think of it) so much, then it wouldn’t be in such a mess right now. Though a cynic might say that they intentionally messed up their last reform, so that they had an excuse to make more radical changes this time around.
