I am delighted that government education "expert" Sir Kevan Collins has gone. Hopefully more so called experts will follow him out the door.

Spare me from “experts”. At the height of the pandemic the “experts” came over the hill in their droves to forecast the end of the world as we knew it.
Unemployment would hit 12%. In fact its 4.8% only marginally ahead of the pre Covid number. Next forecast was the economy would collapse (literally halve) with us learning to survive on a diet of cucumber sandwiches. By December our output will be the same as pre-pandemic numbers.
Not to mention what would happen to house prices the big economic bet in most households. They would crash by 25% said the “experts” along with the stock market forcing granny to appear on Only Fans to pay the mortgage.
All complete cobblers. Unemployment has risen off historic lows but round my way there’s more “help wanted” ads than soup kitchens.
House prices have gone through the roof as has sterling and the economy is booming.

So much for “experts”. I don’t believe they know anything because like racing tipsters if they knew what was going to win they wouldn’t tell anybody.
And for that reason I am delighted Sir Kevan Collins, an education “expert” has resigned after Boris and Rishi refused to fund (it would have cost £15billion) his ridiculous plan to force children to “work” an extra 30 minutes a day to make up for their lost learning due to Covid.
Personally I don’t believe the children will have gone backwards. They are resilient but if they have suffered the reasons are quite clear and an extra half and hour will not help.
Idle teachers will be the main culprits. They simply put a whiteboard on Zoom and then nipped down the boozer neither marking the work on their return or offering any guidance.
The other culprits are the idle parents (and you know who they are) who let the kids play Fortnite rather than forcing them to work.
So goodbye Sir Kevan and good riddance. Take your “expert” advice and shove it up your class.
