Journalists find a story in the slowest news week of the year

And so once again there's debate about A-level results. If the results came out in the middle of October there would never be the amount of attention that they get in mid August when nothing else ever happens.

Once again people are claiming that A-levels are getting easier because more people are passing. Athletes are competing the 100 metres ever more faster - by the same logic does that mean 100 metres is getting shorter?

Rather than yet another upheaval of post 16 education, why don't we just stick to the current system and enhance it. It does schools and pupils no good to be constantly trying to undermine the value of their qualifications and constantly imposing new directions on them.
