JUst wanted to do a quick post about something on the Fabian's Fabians website. It's not about their recent poll on average earnings that Tory Radio and Croydonian mentioned yesterday, but instead their latest issue. It is an Education Special and runs with the headline "Can Gordon Brown fix education?"
After ten years of Labour government, can Gordon Brown fix education? This summer's education issue of the Fabian Review sees interviews with the new Education Secretaries, Ed Balls and John Denham, plus agenda-setting pieces from Tom Hampson, David Blunkett, Louise Bamfield, and Fiona Millar. Read the Fabian Essay on social mobility by John Van Reenen and Stephen Machin.Excuse me? "Fix" education after ten years of Labour? Is that an admission that they've failed then? And if they;ve got "agenda-setting" articles by ministers are they too conceding that they've failed?
