A third of States primary leavers lack skills

Panel chairman Deputy Roy Le Hérissier

AROUND a third of children left States primary schools this year without the expected literacy and mathematics skills.
The Education Department has revealed that 35.2% of children leave States primary schools without the basic literacy skills and 32.3% leave without the basic skills in maths.
And the figures also show that less than 1% of pupils of fee-paying schools with States support fail the comparable standards.
Education and Home Affairs Scrutiny panel chairman Deputy Roy Le Hérissier, whose questions in the States forced Education Minister James Reed to reveal the statistics, says that they make worrying reading.
But the minister refused to reveal a breakdown of results by school, just as he has refused to reveal individual school exam results. (fromJEP)

How can the department allow these youngsters to fail in standard education, its a disgrace....

......THE BOSS......
