Michael Gove doesn’t need to listen to experts or tell the truth. His aim is not to improve education. His task is to parallel that of the reorganisation of the NHS .. the ultimate aim of both being to funnel public funds, straight into the pockets of the private sector. By creating chaos and debilitating State education/NHS, he/they hope to persuade the general public (without triggering a revolution) that the profit-making private sector must be brought in to rescue the system. Assets like school buildings, playing fields, hospitals are silently taken away from public control and handed over to unelected and unaccountable bodies. This is a return to the days of primary accumulation, or as Marx preferred to call it, Looting!
