It's a No From Michael

Your weekend starts here! Gove v Cowell has kicked off this afternoon after the latter advised the nation’s youth that “the secret is to be useless at school and then get lucky”. Not a sentiment that has gone down too well with the Education Secretary.

“This is an irresponsible and stupid thing to say. Teachers strive every day to ensure children understand the importance of learning, hard work and discipline. Simon Cowell’s comments undermine their efforts.  The truth is that only a tiny fraction of people get lucky.  For everybody else, it’s all about hard work and that starts with hard work at school.  Celebrities like Mr Cowell should encourage education, not rubbish it.”

One for the public vote…
