It is comforting to know that in education, as in life, nothing lasts forever.

The SEU (the Government's standards and effectiveness unit) is to be disbanded. Its epitaph must surely be RIP (rest in perpetuity or possibly perdition?) Who or what will be next - perhaps the Department for Education and Skills (the Department for Faulty Educational Standards)?
