Runaway Gove

It was clear to many people in education that Michael Gove was on an ego trip, unable to produce lasting reforms which depended on co-operation, and with a highly inflated sense of his own intellectual power. This has now been confirmed by Nicky Morgan, his successor, who’s understandably irritated by Gove’s inability to back off from his former patch. You start to wonder about Cameron, who only got rid of Gove because Lynton Crosby said he was an electoral liability. How on earth could he have allowed Gove to run free for so long? Doesn’t Cameron have any obligation to people working in education, let alone the actual kids?
