Our failed education system

By Steve in Derby

Can you remember that Blair chap?

You know, the one who in 1997 in one of his speeches went on about education, education, education.

He also wanted those from the poorer families to get into universities to give them a better start in life.

But really he didn't mean it, so what he did to prevent them from going to university?

He charged them tuition fees.

That is what I call one big con.

This Government has been a disaster with our children’s education and future.

For years the C.B.I. have been complaining about the standard of the education, which sadly fell on deaf ears. Now, as highlighted by the chairman of M&S, Sir Stuart Rose, we are paying the price.

Millions of school leavers are not fit for work, and many don’t even have the basic grasp of the three R’s.

It was only a few weeks ago that Tesco chief executive, Sir Terry Leahy, called the education system woeful.

The basic foundation for education is the three R’s. It always has been and always will be.

This is the kind of education Pol Pot wanted for his people; an illiterate society.
