Gove defends Clegg on private schools

Gove defends Clegg on private schools
Michael Gove has issued a strong defence of politicians who choose to send their children to private school, saying it is wrong "to drag people's children in" to the debate on education.

The Education Secretary also said he would "absolutely defend" Nick Clegg if he decided to send his children to private school, a move the Lib Dem leader has suggested he may consider.

His remarks come as Ofsted's chief inspector is set to call for school governors to be paid to increase professionalism. Sir Michael Wilshaw says at the moment governors are often "ill-informed" and "not able to make good decisions".
