Are British schools dumbing down ? Ask popular fictional character Adolf Hitler. Meanwhile, the educrats have come up with a new response to the epidemic of plagirism: call it something else and ignore it. Maybe Conservatives should try that ? We could claim that cheating on our taxes is just another way to support public services.
Could it get any worse ? Where educrats are concerned there's really no limit to the screw-ups possible. Mel P reports that not only has government dumbed down the exams, they've simultaneously managed to make them too hard for the folks at the lower end of the curve.
So that's where we are: exams are too hard and too easy. Isn't socialism great ?
