Jack Kenny has attended BETT since the first at the Barbican. This is his personal view of BETT 2014
What is wrong with us? We all sat there on the first morning of the 30th BETT show and listened respectfully to the tendentious speech from education secretary Michael Gove MP.
Had we forgotten that he is the one who supports the employment of unqualified teachers? He is the one who destroyed the Building Schools for the Future programme to find money for his pet free school projects. He is the one handing over control of various educational consortia to his cronies. He is the one who talks about freedom and localism and yet has centralised control of schools as never before. He is the one who does not understand “transparency”. Apparently his minions even consider Ofsted's Sir Michael Wilshaw subversive.
