NAHT Cymru: PISA 'Not a time for party point-scoring'

The Acting Director of the National Association of Head Teachers says Wales must pull together in the wake of its poor PISA results.

As expected, Wales has fallen further in the PISA rankings. This is no time for finger-waving or point-scoring between the parties. What is most noticeable about the education system in Wales has been the remarkable degree of political consensus across the parties since devolution. We are all in this together and it’s about time we started working together to put it right.

– Dr Chris Howard, Acting Director, NAHT Cymru
