According to the BBC’s Ciaran Jenkins teachers need to take responsibility for the poor state of Welsh education.
Wrong Mr. Andrews you are in charge you are responsible, fess up or resign!
“While he did say the assembly government shared some of the responsibility, the education minister did go on the attack and say that teachers were guilty of complacency in the classroom and schools weren't delivering.
What he didn't really tell us was where the assembly government was going wrong. It's been 10 years since devolution and his government and previous governments have been driving education policy in that time.
He sits around a cabinet table with three previous education ministers. The question people will be asking is where they have gone wrong, and what policies must now be reviewed.
Was the decision to abolish school league tables the correct one?
Could schools benefit from more freedom?
Are the facilities and in some cases the teachers up to the job?
The minister has asked the profession some searching questions.
But with an assembly election in six months, the electorate could well be asking ministers why our schools, by the government's own admission, are failing.”
