Editor's note

The government remains the same, but there's a substantial
reshuffle taking place at the Department for Education and
Employment. As schools minister Estelle Morris takes up the
reins from David Blunkett, TrainingZONE writes an open letter to
the Prime Minister detailing five key areas of education and
training which we consider are a priority for this government's
second term. Read 'Our View' at
