There is no more im­por­tant is­sue for city

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Your Views -

There is a great deal of news space and com­ment de­voted to the dis­as­trous SATs re­sults that have seen Peter­bor­ough left rock bot­tom of the league ta­ble of ed­u­ca­tion au­thor­i­tys. With­out re­peat­ing the ar­gu­ments it is clear that right now there is no more im­por­tant chal­lenge fac­ing the city. From our eco­nomic pros­per­ity and chances of in­vest­ment to the fu­ture of our younger gen­er­a­tions this prob­lem has to be solved. It is dis­grace­ful that the city finds it­self in this po­si­tion af­ter all the money that has been spent. The time for ex­pla­na­tions and hand-wring­ing is over, now the city needs clear ac­tion, good lead­er­ship and vis­i­ble progress at a rapid rate.
