Opposition Day — Approval of Secondary Education Policies by MPs in the House of Commons — 26 Jun 2012 at 18:49

The majority of MPs voted against asking for any proposed changes to secondary education to be put before MPs in the House of Commons.

The motion rejected in this vote was:

  • That this House
  • notes the forthcoming consultation on the restructuring of the secondary education system;
  • further notes the proposals reported in the press on Thursday 21 June of Government plans for replacing GCSEs with an O-Level and CSE system;
  • believes that these proposals could, in the words of the Deputy Prime Minister, ‘lead to a two tier system where children at quite a young age are somehow cast on a scrap heap’; and
  • calls on the Government to ensure any proposal for changes to the secondary education system are subject to approval by the House.
