Good Luck.
A top adviser to the British government has attacked the quality British schools and teachers. The adviser, Dominic Cummings, has worked closely the UK Education Secretary Michael Gove many years. Mr Gove has followed many his adviser's ideas and has become very unpopular British teachers. Cummings has made teachers very angry a new report he made education in Britain. He said education in Britain is " awful and mediocre". He said most teachers do not do a good job the classroom and that "real talent is rare". He wrote: "In England, few teachers are well trained the basics extended writing or mathematical and scientific modelling and problem-solving."

Mr Cummings also attacked other areas Britain's schools. He said billions dollars are "wasted" projects to help poorer students and "pointless" university courses. He argues that many university courses England teach students little and do not help them get a job. He said university students needed to work much harder. Cummings also angered teachers saying 70 per cent a child's ability in the classroom is because his or her genes, and not because teachers. Senior officials at the Department Education have said Mr Cummings should be fired. One said he is the reason a lot of the Education Secretary's "madder ideas".
