The leader of Merthyr Tydfil council, Brendan Toomey, is defending how schools have been run since Labour regained control in May last year. However, he has promised to co-operate with the minister's decision to take the schools off the council. They'll probably be transferred to Rhondda Cynon Taf.
Since May, 2012, the new Labour led administration has wasted no time in meeting the challengehead on with regards to raising the education standards throughout Merthyr Tydfil. Our principal aim has been, and will continue to be, to provide the highest level of education for the young people of Merthyr Tydfil. We recognise that there are significant challenges ahead for all who work within our education services in order to raise standards of attainment and achievement for our children and young people.
– Cllr Brendan Toomey, Leader Merthyr Tydfil County Borough Council
The encouraging news is that we have many ‘green shoots’ and are clear about how to address the significant shortcomings. Already we have begun to implement our strategic plan and are beginning to see improvements. The Minister has announced that discussions now have to take place in order to agree on the most appropriate model to deliver the changes needed. I am happy to work withappropriate organisations to achieve this result.

The leader of Monmouthshire County Council, Peter Fox, said today's Estyn report acknowledged schools there are still performing well, but could do better when deprivation is factored in, and that 'special measures' is a wide recommendation, which could include a range of approaches.
He told our Education Correspondent Joanna Simpson that the council is "already working with other authorities" on several education services, and is "already in discussions over how we can work in a more regional approach" over others.
The leader of Merthyr Tydfil County Borough Council, Brendan Toomey, said Estyn's damning report into Merthyr's education services came as no surprise, and the council has instigated a number of improvements.
He told Nick Powell that he doesn't think it's inevitable that education services will move away from councils' control, as "local authorities need to have a big part to play in the delivery of education services, for accountability reasons."
Our Education Correspondent Joanna Simpson has been speaking to Wales' Education Minister, Leighton Andrews, who says he agrees with Estyn's recommendation that there needs to be action to improve education services at both Monmouthshire and Merthyr Tydfil councils - and he will be intervening.
