I hadn't heard Michael Gove's announcement, but I agree completely with you.
In Highland Council our Personnel section transmogrified a year or so ago into Human Resources, which I believe infers the same reductionist approach to human value. This particular personnel rebels by insisting on using the old name. (Many years ago now, they rightly changed from "manpower".)
Last month I was privileged to hear Richard Beck speaking in The Mission in Old Aberdeen. (If you don't know him, see his blog "Experimental Theology".) When at home in Texas, he takes part in a Bible study in a maximum security prison. One of the very moving and powerful things he said was how he answered a prisoner who asked why he came there every Monday evening when he has a family, a job and better things to do. He replied - with examples demonstrating what he meant - that he found God in the Bible study, and the prisoners helped him to know God better.
