A Message from Michael Bassey

Dear Colleagues
We made it in The Times today.  Well done everybody.  Front page article in the paper version under banner headline “Pupils ‘being damaged by endless tests set by Gove’. 200 writers and academics say reforms must stop”.  Online it’s less prominent but available at the following address
Michael Gove is speaking at the Conservative Party conference this afternoon. (It’ll be on the BBC Parliament programme I think). Be interesting to see if he launches another attack on us.  But he’ll have to swipe at the children’s authors as well if he does!
I’ve started an online listing of significant educational events under the heading of A Perfect Storm Brewing.  You may find it interesting.
Sue Cox, Colin Richards and I thank you for your essential support for our letter.
Best wishes,
Michael Bassey
