Labour: Response to OECD report - Tristram Hunt

Labour press release

Tristram Hunt MP, Labour's Shadow Education Secretary, responding to today's OECD report, said:

"Labour drove up standards in maths and English across our schools, evident in the huge improvements we saw in GCSE results between 1997 and 2010. Of course, more needs to be done and that is why a future Labour Government would ensure all young people study maths and English to 18 and would overturn David Cameron's decision to allow unqualified teachers to teach in our classrooms on a permanent basis.

"By refusing to support Labour's tough stance on standards that would see all young people continuing maths and English to 18 and a qualified teacher in every classroom, we see in David Cameron an out-of-touch Prime Minister who cannot be trusted on school standards."
