Today, the Prime Minister has made teachers in the UK happy. As we speak, they are probably celebrating with as much excitement as the Wizarding Community did when Voldermort was killed.
Why? Well today it was announced that the Minister of Education Michael Gove has been moved
demoted/sacked/tactically shifted from his position to the Chief Whip of the Conservative party. This actually caught me by surprise as Gove has been quite radical in his reforms and so to remove him suggests that the Prime Minister has lost some faith in him.
Teachers over the UK have been at loggerheads with Gove ever since he began his reforms which were and are seen to be terribly misjudged by those in the teaching profession. However, like the people of the Wizarding World soon found out, there was not much to rejoice over upon the death of Voldermort by a small baby. As the election approaches, what this really is, is a move by the Prime Minister to avoid losing even more support from voters due to the unpopularity of Michael Gove.
It is as if he has done all the ‘damage’ he needed to do in the Educational department and now he has been moved for his own safety. Nevertheless, teachers will still be rejoicing upon the announcement given today as well as students who have had to suffer or will be suffering the changes he has brought in. Only time will tell whether the next Secretary of Education will be more effective or simply a puppet for continuing Gove’s madness.
Until Next Time
