Gove: State schools need longer days and entrance exams

State schools in England should be more like private schools, says Education Secretary Michael Gove.

In a speech in east London, he said he wanted to break down the "Berlin Wall" between state and independent sectors.

This could see state pupils taking the private school common entrance exam and state schools staying open longer.

Mr Gove has been embroiled in a row over the replacement of the Ofsted chair and has been warned against surrounding himself with "yes men".
