The Shadow Education Secretary Stephen Twigg said today's announcement was a humiliating climbdown for Michael Gove. Speaking to the Commons Mr Twigg said:
This is a failed vision for education. A total misunderstanding of the future needs of our country. A total shambles. Forced into apologising to the House when you scrapped Building Schools for the Future. Forced into a partial U-turn on school sport. You should have learned your lesson by now.
