    English Bac. Government LEAVE THE KIDS ALONE,

    BBC News - GCSEs replaced by 'English Bac' in key subjects this is the final straw for me as far as this Coalition Government is concerned. When, if ever will these politicians learn to stop messing about with Education?

    As the Pink Floyd song says 'Leave The Kids Alone' - good grief too many of them are over stressed with all the pressures of the existing over tinkered system and constant changes and it's not like as if Government is doing anything to make their paths into adulthood and work any easier.

    Apologies if there is a thread running on this already, I'm on an iPad and for some unknown reason Search isn't displayed.

    If you're the new guy in charge you have to make changes, otherwise when things randomly improve it's not because of you. In my new world order you get to be in charge by passing a test, but the people can vote you out if you're bad. Vote mavhc for world president

    What are you talking about? I though everyone was a winner? And if you don't do well at school, you can always have a top 10 record.
