An educational postcode lottery means thousands of children in our region are still getting a sub-standard education.
The annual report by watchdog Ofsted reveals remarkable differences depending on where you live - especially for children aged between 11 and 18.
Fewer than half of secondary school students in Cambridgeshire attend what Ofsted calls good or outstanding schools.
Norfolk's doing a little better - 67 per cent of student are at schools rated good or better - but a third are at schools needing improvement.
In Suffolk 70 per cent of children are getting a good education according to inspectors.
While in Essex, nearly 9 out of 10 students go to schools that are either good or outstanding.
It's the same in Luton, where Ofsted say 9 out of 10 students are at a good or outstanding school.
