Ed­u­ca­tion

Weekend Herald - - NEWS -

Na­tional has a strong fo­cus on driv­ing stu­dents to­wards the boom­ing IT and con­struc­tion in­dus­tries. The party has vowed to get 80 per cent of 13 year olds at or above Na­tional Stan­dards in maths by 2021 and says it will give all chil­dren the op­por­tu­nity to learn a sec­ond lan­guage at pri­mary school, should they wish to.

Labour will abol­ish Na­tional Stan­dards and de­velop a new sys­tem.
