Golden Fleeced

"Research shows that the so-called golden age [of tough school examinations] is as mythical as Jason and the Argonauts" - Education Secretary Alan Johnson.

Channel 4's 'That'll teach them' disagrees! 68% of viewers thought that education in the 1950s was better than today's.

Many of the pupils predicted 'A's and 'B's failed their O-levels.

Sounds like a straw man to me. Nobody is saying that there was a golden age of education in this country. It just wasn't crap like it is now.
