Michael Gove children
Unfortunately, the real achievements of children on the ground became debased and devalued because Labor education secretaries sounded like Soviet commissars praising the tractor production figures when we know that those exams were not the rock-solid measures of achievement that children deserve.
Michael Gove education
As long as there are people in education making excuses for failure, cursing future generations with a culture of low expectations, denying children access to the best that has been thought and written, because Nemo and the Mister Men are more relevant, the battle needs to be joined.

I'm clear that we do need to improve what's happening in our schools.
Michael Gove school
Teachers themselves know if there's a colleague who can't keep control or keep the interest of their class, it affects the whole school.
Michael Gove school

One of the problems we've had is that the ICT curriculum in the past has been written for a subject that is changing all the time. I think that what we should have is computer science in the future - and how it fits in to the curriculum is something we need to be talking to scientists, to experts in coding and to young people about.

Children themselves know they are being cheated. Ultimately we owe it to our children. They are in school for 190 days a year. Every moment they spend learning is precious. If a year goes by and they are not being stretched and excited, that blights their life.

Michael Gove strength
Labor, under their current leadership, want to be the Downtown Abbey party when it comes to educational opportunity. They think working class children should stick to the station in life they were born into - they should be happy to be recognized for being good with their hands and not presume to get above themselves.
Michael Gove life
My sister and I know our lives could have been different - radically, unthinkably, irretrievably different - if we had not been adopted.

We might have found ourselves in care for much longer, without the secure attachment that being cradled in a mother's arms brings.

Michael Gove art
There is a slam-dunk case for extending foreign language teaching to children aged five. Just as some people have taken a perverse pride in not understanding mathematics, so we have taken a perverse pride in the fact that we do not speak foreign languages, and we just need to speak louder in English.
Michael Gove people
The big shift in approach on education that we are taking - which is different from what happened before - is that we trust teachers and we trust heads.
