A member of the teachers’ union insisted that the Education Secretary was determined to “exterminate anything good in education that’s come along since the 1950s”.
Ian Murch launched a scathing attack against Mr Gove, and described the embattled minister as a “parody of an Education Secretary” with a “mad idea for every occasion”.
He led calls for a replacement who “believes in treating teachers properly and respecting their professionalism”.
"We are here to do the public a favour, to make sure Michael Gove's days are numbered. Michael Gove you have to go,” he added.
