Gordon Brown's education
Sep 29, 2007
Bishop Hill in Labour

Gordon Brown has been holding forth on the subject of education.

We've moved our schools from being below average to being above average. We've now got to make them world class.

Whatever Gordon Brown studied at Edinburgh, I'm quite certain it wasn't mathematics because his understanding of the word "average" seems a little, shall we say, hazy. We know this because the BBC reports in the same article that the government has been stung into action by 

a controversial report earlier this year from Unicef, which put the UK at the bottom of a league table of children's well-being among 21 industrialised nations.
