11 year old asks Nicky Morgan to reconsider SATs policies.

‘As thousands of children missed school in protest at the new controversial SATs tests, a Year 6 student has written an emotive letter to the education secretary about her upcoming exams.

Eleven-year-old Alice, who is due to take the new 'more rigorous' brand of SATs this summer, described Nicky Morgan's curriculum as 'shuddering' and told the minister the tests were making her reconsider her ambition to become a writer.

The spirited student wrote: "I write in all my spare time but after taking some of these SATs tests I am considering not doing any more writing. Children at the age of sixteen should not be put through such a hard time let alone 10 or 11 year-olds.”’ – International Business Times
