Primary schools DO teach the basics: always have done and always will. Where did Mr Gove get the idea from that they don't? "Back to basics" was the catchphrase of John Major in the early 1990s: it sounds good in simplistic tabloid headlines but means absolutely nothing. Indeed, if you look at the ideas Gove put forward this week re the latest re-write of the National Curriculum, it was not just basics but ancients he wants - like Latin and Greek at KS2! Ridiculous.
