Dear Prime Minister
Teachers, writers and educational experts across the country are driven to distraction by the unstable behaviour of Education Secretary Michael Gove. He is single-handedly wreaking havoc on the morale and practice of school learning, apparently unchallenged by anyone within his own party. Quite simply we urge you to get this misguided man to step down from government office.

Why is this important?

Education is the practice of learning in which knowledge and skills are transferred from one generation to the next through teaching, training, or research. Michael Gove refuses to abide by the wisdom of generations by ignoring research findings; by denying expert opinion; by deriding expertise in the field; and by deliberately demoralising our teachers. Any pupil or student similarly and willfully ignoring research, expertise and secure knowledge in the same way as Michael Gove would fail any examination. Any inspected school doing so would be found "Inadequate". To save the future of education in this country and to prevent further damage Michael Gove must be persuaded to resign.

    He's playing with children's lives.

    He is responsible for putting so much pressure on the education system, that he has ruined the lives of endless teachers by undervaluing them, increasing unnecessary workloads for financial reasons. Also for creating a system that puts so much pressure on young people, a stressful, boring environment, where you are valued as a number and not a human being. Michael Gove if you read this you are nothing more than an accountant for statistics of the education money pot.
