Politics of bad pisa

Education Minister Dan Tehan was out early with the bad PISA results for school maths and science

He wasn’t blaming teachers, Mr Tehan works hard to make friends with those in the classroom, but he is no ally of the school-education establishment. He fine-tuned his lines in Question Time yesterday and last night released a statement, suggesting that at next week’s minco, state ministers “should leave the teacher’s union talking points at home” and that they should, “embed how to teach phonics as part of teacher training.”
