Pearson's statement on today's announcement on the future of GCSEs
Rod Bristow, President of Pearson UK, has commented on today's announcement on GCSE reform from Michael Gove.
"We must encourage all young people to have high educational aspirations, and raise the standards bar to match and exceed the best in the world. At Pearson we have been working hard on developing new World Class Qualifications which deliver these standards and we will press on with this work in order to make a contribution to the new GCSEs outlined by Michael Gove today.
"We also look forward to contributing to the debate on future accountability measures. For too long, accountability measures have risked capping our young people's aspirations and we look forward to the opportunity to help shape a better system."
