Gove vs English Literature

Michael Gove has banned To Kill a Mockingbird and other American books from the English Literature syllabus. The question is not just whether he should or not. The question is whether somebody who obviously knows nothing about English Literature should be taking such decisions :)

Gove notoriously puts his fingers in his ears and goes "Yadda Yadda Yadda" (like the grown-up he is) whenever educational theory is mentioned. He has squandered billions on the Free Schools fiasco while our schools are starved of cash. And he is set fair to be the next leader of the Tory Party because every time he offends teachers and education workers his ratings with the Tory Backwoodsmen skyrockets.

The NUT "Stand up for Education" campaign is the answer to Gove's Philistinism :)
