  • "Yes, I'd want an end to special funded schools, it just takes away money from the state ones, on top of everything else it creates a have and have not education system dependent on how much cash your parents have or are prepared to spend. Poorest children are thus dumped out of it. We shouldn't forget it was the TORIES/Labour who decided to fill a teacher vacancy with someone off the dole as an 'assistant' has contributed to diminishing good education too. Assistants run the classes, teachers fill in forms. Every news coverage of the NHS it is the same we see the images of half a dozen nurses NOT on the wards administering care and support, but grouped around the tables filling in forms and at computers. At school our kids left untaught and managed by baby sitters."

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?
