The incompetence of Ministers at the Department for Education is breathtaking

city_centre_small.jpgLucy Powell MP, Labour’s Shadow Secretary of State for Education, commenting on news that a SATs spelling test due to be taken by half a million seven year olds in England next month has been published accidentally on the Departments for Education’s website:

“The incompetence of Ministers at the Department for Education is breathtaking. They have created chaos in the assessment system, and to publish upcoming test papers online, before children have had a chance to sit them, renders the whole process null and void. It is an insult to the pupils and teachers who have been working hard to prepare for them.”
