Graham Stuart said;
'I have spoken to a number of different people about this (including the Minister) and hope to come forward with a proposal for everyone to look at, dispute, improve etc to deliver the above aims. I have initially asked a few people to help come up with a first draft'
Alison Sauer is one of these people and there are definitely others, at least according to Graham Stuart. Much is being made of the fact that one of these does not live in the UK, which suggests to me either Paula Rothermel, Kelly Green or possibly Alan Thomas, depending upon whether he is currently in England or Australia. Anybody have any ideas about who is actually doing this? More to the point, who is paying for this and is it actually part of a government initiative? The fact that he has apparently spoken to Michael Gove, suggests that it is being done as part of an official policy. In other words, is this some private project of Graham Stuart's which he is working on with a few friends or are these guidelines likely to be adopted by the Department for Education? If the latter, then it is strange that the whole thing has been done in private so far without any sort of announcement. I am aware that Graham Stuart is Chair of the CSF select committee, but I am far from convinced that this gives him a mandate for enterprises of this kind!
