Second class talents?

Gordon Brown has been making a lot in his first speech to the Labour Party Conference of the parable of the talents. To this end, his headline revamp of education policy includes a lot of impressive figures: one-to-one tuition for 300,000 primary school pupils in literacy; the same for another 300,000 in maths; a guaranteed 5 hours of school sport per week; and “time for arts and music”.

You’re not reluctant to put a similar commitment on that last, are you Gordon?

One thought on “Second class talents?

  1. FIVE hours of sport a week? Is this an education policy or a sinister plan to ease up on university places by humiliating all the nerdy kids into committing suicide?
