Cane for Gove?

16th July 2010 at 01:00

The initial and "corrected" lists of Building Schools for the Future schools included an error that has gone unnoticed by Education Secretary Michael Gove. Both refer to "Adams Grammer School" instead of Adams' Grammar School. It appears to have been missed by Ed Balls, too, during his scrutiny of the list. Perhaps the Speaker of the House should make the miscreants stay in for detention when Parliament goes into recess at the end of the month and be made to write out "Adams' Grammar School" 650 times - a line for each MP.
