Headteachers ‘losing confidence in A-levels’

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.
