Education Secretary a “Bird Brain”

There’s a lot going on here and -- honestly? -- I could argue both sides for kids reading (or not reading, as the case may be) classic authors. You probably could, too. Perhaps as this debate continues, I’ll bring more updates. In the meantime, this had to be quoted from the Telegraph instantly:

The National Association for the Teaching of English called Mr Johnson a “bird brain” yesterday.

Maybe if Ian McNeilly, the director of said organization, had read more classic literature, he’d be able to dig for a better insult? (At least he didn’t call him a scrotum.)

The Telegraph piece is here.
