Education in Wales falls behind

Last week, it was announced that the key stage three results in Wales have fallen further behind England than ever before.

Statistics published last week by the Assembly Government showed that the difference was most significant in maths, for which results in Wales were nine points lower than in England. The gap has widened since records began in 2000, when there was a two per cent difference in maths.

The gap in GCSE results are also widening, with six per cent more pupils in English schools obtaining five A*-C grades.

If this isn't ringing any alarm bells, then it should be. The future of any nation lies in the education of its young people and if they are failing, then as sure as night follows day, so will the Welsh economy.
