Um hold on. How can the collection of the data be to keep children of illegal immigrants out of schools when the information can only be collected when they already have a place

I was pretty shocked to find myself agreeing with Nicky Morgan when I read the story this morning.

Good Lord! I can't actually believe I find myself agreeing with Nicky Morgan about anything.

An apology. When people on here were claiming that schools were collecting nationality data because of some sort of racist purge, I argued that the data was most likely needed for research into effective school interventions.

Apparently the government are in fact, actually, a fucking disgrace. I'm appalled. And to those I disagreed with: I'm sorry, you were right. And I'm sorry you were right.
