The Education Secretary denied claims from critics that the plans to tear up the current exam system as well as abolishing the National Curriculum would create a two-tier system, telling the Commons that there was already a divide between the best and worst schools.But the Liberal Democrats dismissed the possibility of a return to the 'two-tier' system of the 1950s, saying no-one outside of Tory Cabinet minister Mr Gove’s office appeared to have known it was being considered.'While there were undoubtedly improvements in our schools and by our teachers over the course of the last 20 years, those improvements were not sufficient to ensure that we kept pace with other jurisdictions.'Mr Gove believes the creation of GCSEs by the Tories in the 1980s was a 'historic mistake' that has 'failed pupils' and led to the collapse of standards through grade inflation and a proliferation of 'Mickey Mouse' courses.

The discovery of radioactivity, in general, actually came about on a few different fronts.First was the discovery of X-ray radiation that was artificially generated in a laboratory, followed by the discovery of several elements that naturally emit radiation when the nucleus of the atoms disintegrate or decay.These are the elements that today are called radioactive elements and are said to have unstable nuclei.Just before the turn of the century, in the mid to late 1890's, several scientists were working with cathode ray tubes investigating properties of fluorescent minerals.
Fluorescent minerals are certain minerals that glow when exposed to sunlight.
At the same time, other scientists were busy gathering evidence on the theory that the atom could be divided into even smaller subatomic particles.
