Silence of the Pink ‘Un III

Once is chance, twice coincidence, but three times just looks like poor form from the FT’s Education Correspondent Chris Cook. Once again a story that is awkward for his proprietor – Pearson “the world’s leading learning company”– has failed to make the pages of the pink ‘un. After years of denials, Ofqual have finally ruled that exams are getting easier – a pretty big story it seems:

  • Sun: GCSE is too easy
  • Independent: Exams are easier now, report finds
  • Mirrror: Exams now easier than 10 years ago
  • Telegraph: Exam system ‘undermined after decade of dumbing down’
  • Mail: The proof that exams really have got easier
  • Guardian: A-level exams have become easier, says regulator
  • Times: A-levels have got easier, says exam chief

And nothing in the FT. Surely that pious and righteous bastion of journalistic integrity would not suppress the truth because of its commercial interests?
