“Our goal should now be that we are the generation that had made it possible for children not only to start education at three but to continue in education or training until 18.”
Gordon, stop saying “Education” when you mean “School”. Which of course, implies “Our increasingly poor, inadequate and irrelevant school systems which consistently leaves vast swathes of young adults funcitonally illiterate, innumerate and unable to express themselves in socially constructive ways.”
But wait, It gets better:
“This is about all our futures. Our ambition for education: to raise the floor and to remove the ceiling, a higher floor for all to build from, with no ceiling on talent, no limit to potential, no cap on aspiration.”
Okay, early entry there for “worst political metaphor of 2007”. No ceiling, a higher floor… I’m sure that was the Spanish holiday resort I was booked into last year.
