An Open Letter to Mr Gove about Teaching Assistants

I may be biased, what with my wife being a TA, but Gove is (of course) making sweeping and ill-informed statements without any thought for the consequences. Just for a change, then.
I thought that if any group of people can sympathise with TA's being underpaid, undervalued and overworked, it must be you lot :)
