Torfaen education authority faces special measures
There is further pressure to reform the way Wales 22 councils provide education services.
Schools inspector Estyn has recommended that the education services of another council be placed in special measures.
It means that shortfalls in Torfaen's schools have not been addressed and are unlikely to get better without help.
The council leader has apologised.
