On Wednesday 30 June, the Secretary of State for Education, Michael Gove wrote to unions inviting them to become members of the new Education Partnership.

Highlighting his own immediate priorities for the partnership, the Secretary of State said he would like it to consider amongst other points:

  • how to reduce bureaucracy together and thereby free school staff to focus on raising standards

  • how to strengthen staff authority, toughen school discipline and make it easier for teachers to remove disruptive pupils, as well as ensuring a radical improvement in the environment in which disruptive and excluded pupils are educated.
