Michael Gove is planning to cut down on resits at GCSE level to stop giving people more than one chance to try and succeed after they've failed.
This is Michael Gove's 4th attempt at trying to make a successful education system after failing previously.

I can't tell if this makes me want to laugh or scream. For those that aren't aware, the melting Thunderbirds puppet's latest idea is to rename GCSE grades from the current A*, A, B...F, U to 8, 7, 6...2, 1. That is possibly the best example of 'change for change's sake' I will ever see in my lifetime.

No, you're thinking of Skrillex:

He, like you, makes horrible noises no one sane wants to listen to.

Michael Gove on the other hand looks like a ventriloquist's dummy that's been left on a hot radiator:

The worrying thing is that the mandatory provision of choklit milk and peetzer would be more sensible than the half-baked claptrap Gove is trying to force through as reform.

Incidentally, does anyone else see the flaw in pushing performance-related-pay at the same time as deliberately making exams harder? We're already in the situation where the pressure to get better results every year has a couple of my colleagues running two hour unpaid revision sessions after school every night of the week during the exam season. The reward for digging bigger holes is a better shovel :facewall:

"How is it that hardly any major religion has looked at science and concluded, 'This is better than we thought! The Universe is much bigger than our prophets said, grander, more subtle, more elegant. God must be even greater than we dreamed'? Instead they say, 'No, no, no! My god is a little god, and I want him to stay that way.'" - Carl Sagan

Remarkable...I don't think anyone would notice the difference.

The Onion: Gay Marriage Opponents Warn Supreme Court Ruling Could Put Nation On Slippery Slope To Rationality

“I don’t think people fully understand that letting homosexuals legally marry one another is just the very beginning of a dangerous road to clear logic and sound, sensible decision making,” said anti-gay protester Kevin Moore, 43, who warned that the landmark ruling will likely lead to “an unspeakable amount of enlightened discourse and thoughtful compromises across the country.”
