Tories: Welsh Gov 'a barrier to young people's success'

Wales' Shadow Minister for Education has criticised the Welsh Government as 'a barrier to the success of young people in schools' following a major review into the education system here.

This scathing report rips apart Labour’s management of the Welsh education system over the past 15 years.

Under Labour, teacher morale is at an all-time low, policies are poorly implemented and there is no long-term vision to raise standards and help young people compete in the global race.

Wales is competing in an increasingly international jobs market and if Welsh students don’t excel in key skills of communication, numeracy and science, they will lose out.

– Angela Burns AM, Welsh Conservative Shadow Minister for Education
