Gove's O-Level Proposal

Michael Gove's desire to return the 16+ exam system to the more rigorous style once seen in O-levels has ruffled a hen coop load of feathers but is undoubtedly the right move.  Whether he achieves it or not is another matter, but for what they're worth I blogged some nicely supportive comments about the proposal on the TRG's website here.  I do think that having decided a comprehensive exam doesn't work and ditching it in favour of a more academically selective one might be a principle worth applying to schools?  We could call the academically stretching schools grammar schools or some such thing.
