    Should education even come under local councils? The same can be said of social services. That fits better under the NHS alongside GP's
    Education has been a political game of tennis for years by both the UK government and WAG. Education policy and curriculum changes so often that some schools struggle to keep up with the latest fad. Primary school teaching methods have completely changed in the last 5 years. Back then it was all about spelling things as they phonetically. Now it's very much learn through play and the kids will get there eventually. Why do the WAG find it so difficult to find a method that works and stick to it.
    Constant fighting for funds for supplies whilst having to pay hundreds of thousands of pounds on bank teachers to cover lessons is insanity.
    Go online to your schools web site and look for the Governors Annual Report.
    Not the most interesting I know, but there should be figures for the school spend for last year. Look how much is spent and where. It opened my eyes."

CARWYN Jones lost faith in some councils delivering a high standard of education.

He said how can he have faith when Torfaen, Monmouthshire, Merthyr Tydfil, Anglesey, Blaenau Gwent and Pembrokeshire are in special measures.

He thinks some councils are incapable of improving education and it’s impossible to have faith in the delivery of education across Wales.

Mr Jones argued it gives further urgency to the need to cut the number of councils, only if Labour get a majority in the Welsh Assembly after the next Assembly elections.

If Mr Jones has no confidence in some Labour councillors, how can he expect the voter to show any confidence for them to run our councils?
