EBC abandoned!

You are here

Michael Gove has been overwhelmed by evidence that the EBac Certificate was fatally flawed. He really should accept that his proposals were wrong, educationally illiterate and ill thought-out. In Gove's case he has really only made grudging concessions. Yes the EBC name has gone but he wishes to change fundamentally the nature of GCSEs along the lines he originally proposed for the new qualification. Educationalists still have a big battle on their hands to resist the abolition of coursework and different means of assessing progress, other than by terminal exams. Full details from the BBC education pages can be found here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-21363396
