Despite Labour pouring billions of hard earned taxpayers cash into schools over the last decade it seems standrds in state schools have actually fallen. Maybe this will show left-wingers that you can't just chuck money at public services and hope they'll improve. What a waste.

As I've posited on 2 other threads on this already - is it not possible that other countries' education systems have gotten better, rather than ours having gotten worse?

this is probably true - but i don't think the government should strive for mediocrity, and be happy because we've not got worse. If everyone else is improving but we are not, how is that okay?
Well surely it gets to a point where you can't really get much better?
So maybe we've been coasting for a few years, and now a few other nations have surpassed us... which I guess means the bar has been raised.
All nations are gonna converge onto the same point anyway eventually, as standards continue to rise globally, getting ever closer to the ceiling, the limit of academic performance
