  • "Exactly. If special measures helps a school out it's got to be the way to go.
    What annoys me is that after years of slowly starving our schools of resources to employ full time teachers dedicated to that school and drip feeding supplies so you have cases of parents or teachers having to fund supplies for project and coursework, the WAG have discovered £20 million to give to selected schools. If they had proper funding and support over the last decade or so, i wonder would they be in the same situation as they are now. I applaud the extra funding but unfortunately, after surviving ( not living ) in Wales under the WAG, i can't help but feel cynical in the timing. For me, it's too little to late. Bye bye Carwyn. Bye bye Ed. It's been.........disappo
    inting."

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?
