I honestly think that the first realistic step in fixing this, and similar problems across the rest of the essential services that are being run into the ground is to have a cabinet made up of people with relevant experience and qualifications as opposed to either sycophants who have been rewarded for toeing the line or those who have been given the post because nobody else can be found to fill it. This at least gives us a chance of seeing policies put into place because they will do some good rather than grab headlines or give the impression of competence.
Some days I think the only thing keeping me from becoming homicidal is that the voices can't agree on which weapon would be the most fun.

The central argument is that the people are focussing on the symptoms and not their causes. We use medical analogies. Most of the ills in the education system as a whole are the products of systemic failure caused largely by mad political interference. Remove those and the symptoms disappear.  angel1
I say again you have to act on both

A key root cause of issues in education is that every new politician in the role thinks that they have to make their mark by changing the system usually placing extra burdens on the educators and rarely giving a tinkers cuss about the students.  Gove was a prime example of this.

Quite like the idea of some sort of independent body but the devil would be in the detail of actually making such work
Well, whatever nevermind
