The National Union of Teachers has welcomed the Education Secretary's decision to U-turn over GCSEs today. General secretary Christine Blower said:
– Christine Blower, General Secretary of the National Union of Teachers
This is a victory for all those who have campaigned against this ill thought-out reform to GCSEs.
The Education Secretary must now learn a lesson from this fiasco and consult with those who know far more than he appears to do about education.
