Michael Gove 'is planning to to break up state school system' says Sir Ken Robinson


Michael Gove is planning to break up the state school system and privatise education, a leading academic predicted on Monday.

Sir Ken Robinson, an expert on creativity in education, claimed the Education Secretary had been “preposterously rude” to 100 academics who had signed a letter to The Independent attacking his reform plans, by describing them as “the blob”.

Speaking at the Royal Society of Arts, Sir Ken said his own prediction would be that it was all “a determined effort to break up the school system and privatise it”.
