Commenting on the formal legal challenge from a group of teaching unions, schools and councils to this year’s GCSE marking scandal, the head of the National Union of Teachers has said:
It is a dreadful shame that it has come to this.
The Education Secretary should have taken the lead from Wales and re-graded this year’s English GCSEs.
The NUT, as part of a coalition of other interested parties, has been left with no option but to try and redress through the courts the great injustice suffered this year by schools and pupils.
