The education paper in full

bookdrunk has carried on with his analysis of the new Education paper. He concludes that it is pretty unimpressive: another combination of NuLabour double-talk, ill-thought-through mumbo-jumbo and the same old policies trumpeted as new ones.
Given the desirable situation is for every school to be a good school, we're left wondering exactly what criteria will be used to exercise 'choice'; it's inferred that this might mean 'specialist' schools or religious schools, but for a document stating a new principal for education it's still left tremendously unclear. There's a curious blend of comprehensive values ("excellence for all") - and free marketeering ("individual choice for all") that has yet to be resolved in any coherent fashion.

Go and read: it's good stuff.
