Obsessive jargon

I am not exaggerating when I say I have yet to hear any senior Labour figure talk about education in terms of what it is supposed to be - the opening up of minds to the world. Instea it is all jargon out of business schools. The Government has become so obsessed with the economics of education that it has largely ceased to talk about human beings at all.
