The Shadow Education Secretary says today's GCSE results reveal a "troubling decline" in attainment.
Assembly Member Darren Millar has now called on Kirsty Williams to re-think her reform of the schools curriculum.
Today's GCSE Level results are very disappointing and indicate a troubling decline on last year’s results. While I want to extend my congratulations to those students who secured the grades they deserve, the results show us that too many learners have not been able to reach their full potential. The drop in attainment of grades A*- C and plummet in uptake of modern foreign languages are particularly disturbing, and do not bode well for Wales’ future economic prospects.
The Cabinet Secretary must look again at the pace and direction reform, and question whether it is the right path to follow - the evidence to date is far from compelling.
