All Change!

Philosophers used to think up new ways to descibe the world on the grounds that ‘they must have their own system or be enslaved by another man’s’. This seems to be how British politicians think too. Every government that takes office takes the health system and school system apart and puts it all back together. Now the British government is to end GCSE exams and make everyone sit ‘EBAC’ instead.
Seems pretty meaningless to me. Why don’t they save themselves lots of money and paper? They can have any type of exam they want at 16 but it makes no sense to give them a new name. After all course specifications are rewritten all the time. A qualification is not fixed – GCSE’s have always been a moving target.
