NAHT comments on Sutton Trust research into GCSE reforms

Commenting on new research released today (Thursday 5 December) by the Sutton Trust looking at the the impact of Gove's GCSE reforms, James Bowen, NAHT director of policy, said:

“Simply making exams tougher does nothing to raise standards and improve outcomes. In fact, it risks widening the attainment gap rather than narrowing it. All too often government see exam reform as an easy and simplistic solution when long-term investment and support for schools is what is really required.”
