New Labour fails Education

During 13 years of power, Labour has failed abysmally to reform any public service but its dereliction of duty is most obvious in education. Our state schools leave half our children illiterate and innumerate yet the prescribed remedy is to create exams that even the truly moronic can be judged to have passed. The Government now threatens higher education, our last hope of creating a skilled workforce to meet the challenges of the next generation. Universities face catastrophic funding cuts to preserve Brown’s benefit claimants and state employees and to pay the interest on his hideous national borrowings. Yet Britain is threatened with relentless decline, unless we can start to educate our children to the same standard as the young workforces of Asia.
