I see that the SNP has announced it's plans to reduce class sizes yet again in Scottish Schools. What a forward thinking party. Big classes don't work - overcrowded classes definately don't work - so making a class smaller, giving each child more "quality time" with their teacher has to be a good thing.
So, what is the reaction in England? Will the temporary Prime Minister in waiting do the same thing, being Scottish of course? Don't be silly. This is England. Smaller classes would mean spending money on more teachers to make the classes smaller, so instead there will be a review of the Literacy and Numeracy teaching (no doubt the findings will say that we're not teaching the kids hard enough).
Brilliant! Keep the classes big, and then blame the quality of teaching as the reason for the lack of improvement. It's win - win for the government.
