The Education Secretary Michael Gove is one of the Government's biggest reformers. That can be good or bad depending on your point of view.
But the U-turn on his GCSE reforms - labelled by some as Gove Levels - is a considerable setback. This is not just because he has bowed to considerable opposition (which included the exams regulator OFQUAL).
Many thought the plans were hastily pulled together and then rushed through. Even a former Tory Education Secretary Kenneth Baker said so. So this reversal is also potentially damaging to Mr Gove's perceived competence. It will certainly embolden the critics of his other reforms.
