Meanwhile, Health Minister, Jeremy Hunt was being ordered to come clean with Parliament.

If you work your way through the DoH spin and weasel words, you might be frustrated and possibly just a little alarmed?

Just what are the bureaucrats at the DoH playing at?

Any thoughts on what’s really happening here?

On the surface, this initiative by the UK Government seems a good idea but I have my reservations. This is a RECOMMENDED READ. Check it out!

Major reform will help hundreds of thousands of young people get good jobs – Press releases – GOV.UK.

The initiative proposes that young people who leave school without minimum levels achievement in Maths and English MUST attend additional classes after leaving school.

I struggle with the word “MUST” in the policy statement.

What concerns me is how will the Government ensure that these youngsters MUST reach the appropriate minimum level of achievement in English and Maths?

Will the government use sanction or penalty, otherwise I fear that the initiative is a waste of money?

For me, youngsters who fail to achieve minimum levels of education in English and Maths should be penalized in terms of lower allowances or benefits. Youngsters who have jobs but do not have certified minimum levels of attainment in English and Maths should pay penal rates of taxation on their earnings, as an incentive to redress their educational weakness.

Any thoughts?
