Right-hand man to the left

What a wonderful article Peter Mortimore's "New government, new challenges" (TES, April 18) was.

If only Labour would attempt to achieve his four objectives it would do wonders for education. He should be adviser to the next Secretary of State to assist in the implementation of these far-reaching and forward-looking policies. Oh for Sanctuary Buildings with a man like Peter Mortimore at the helm or at least in the crow's nest!
