Friday Links: You can only have good ‘A’ Levels if your parents can pay for private school.

It sucks and part of me would like to think it’s just incompetence but a bigger part of me feels that it’s probably design. However to hear Gavin Williamson talk about students being over promoted because of exam results based on their predicted grades…..Has he looked at his cabinet colleagues?
