Not Motivating Students
A rather unfortunate piece of video surfaced last week showing Secretary of State for Education Mr Michael Gove addressing students at Haberdashers Aske school. What ever the purpose of the speech, it clearly was not aimed at the young people having to endure it. It looks rather more as though it was aimed at the media who were present filming him.
Teachers take assemblies every day in schools - to plan them effectively and capture the interest of students takes care and skill.
I'm not saying that Mr Gove can't relate to young people, but this is a very unfortunate piece of footage. To view it the video, click here.
