Deputy PM Nick Clegg against 'two-tier exam system'
Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg has reacted angrily to Michael Gove's plan to scrap GCSEs in England.
Speaking from Brazil, where he is attending a sustainable development summit, he said: "This is self-evidently not policy that has either been discussed or agreed within the coalition government."
He added: "I am not in favour of anything that would lead to a two-tier system where children at quite a young age are somehow cast on a scrap heap."
