Letter: Teachers are taught the wrong things

Click to follow
Sir: I was interested in your headline "Teaching trainees have worst A-levels" (10 June). It is a curious contradiction that we have a prime minister who is held up as an example of the meritocratic nature of our society precisely because he does not have a distinguished academic background. Can the Government please make up its mind which it regards as the most desirable?
