Good Luck.
top adviser to British government has attacked quality of British schools and teachers. adviser, Dominic Cummings, has worked closely with UK Education Secretary Michael Gove for many years. Mr Gove has followed many of his adviser's ideas and has become very unpopular with British teachers. Cummings has made teachers very angry about new report he made on education in Britain. He said education in Britain is "between awful and mediocre". He said most teachers do not do a good job in classroom and that "real talent is rare". He wrote: "In England, few teachers are well trained in basics of extended writing or mathematical and scientific modelling and problem-solving."
Mr Cummings also attacked other areas of Britain's schools. He said billions of dollars are "wasted" on projects to help poorer students and on "pointless" university courses. He argues that many university courses in England teach students little and do not help them get job. He said university students needed to work much harder. Cummings also angered teachers by saying 70 per cent of child's ability in classroom is because of his or her genes, and not because of teachers. Senior officials at Department for Education have said Mr Cummings should be fired. One said he is reason for a lot of Education Secretary's "madder ideas". Many teachers also want Michael Gove to be fired.
