Back to Skool

Primary schoolchildren underperforming? Wot about the ministers? Or the Guardian sub-editors, we should  be charitable:

“Nick Gibb, the schools minister, said the tables showed many primaries were providing a “first-class education”. But half of all 10- and 11-year-old boys on free school meals were not reaching the standards expected of them and were “being let down by our education system”, he added. “It is unacceptable that after seven years of primary school, these children are not the standard in English and maths that they need to be to flourish at secondary school.”

That should read “at the standard in English and maths.”

Fail.
