Sometimes I think the BBC's on-line news front page is written just to wind me up.
This weekend it carried a Gov report from the DCSF (Department for the most recent Government Edu Acronym) who commissioned ex WHSmith Chairman, Richard Handover, to conduct a "value for money review" in education.
In it he claims civil servants and head teachers appear to have no idea what value for money means, and calls for 40,000 teaching assistant jobs to go and cites as an example of incompetence a case where £35,000 was spent on a £1,000 photocopier.
His report follows last week's statement from Education Secretary Ed Balls that schools could save £2bn by sacking Senior Teachers.
