Gove was ‘despised’, says Nicky Morgan’s new mental health tsar | Schools Week

“Michael Gove was a “despised” and “divisive” education secretary who refused to acknowledge the link between mental health and academic performance”, says the present education secretary’s mental health tsar.

Michael-Gove_jpg_pagespeed_ce_0Dv96BPT6TShe said Mr Gove’s refusal to accept the link between health and self-esteem and performance at school manifested in many ways, including a “narrowed curriculum”, “slashed budgets” and his “refusal to sign a mandate” ensuring a minimum of two hours of physical education per week.

She might have added that Gove will always be despised for what he did during his time at education.

At least we now have someone speaking directly to the Education Secretary about mental health issues and its impact in our schools.
