Gove gets his sums wrong over EMA
Channel 4 has checked Mr Gove’s maths and found he’s at the bottom of the class. He said in the debate on EMA that pupils would be better off. Channel 4 looked at his figures and found they won’t be.
Andy Burnham said “In typical Gove fashion, as with school sport, he has taken a successful scheme [the EMA] – applauded by the IFS – and turned it into a shambles. It’s always the same – snap decisions, no consultation and no grip on the detail.”
This would be funny if it were not so tragic.
