OECD: Huw Lewis 'tackling' and 'grappling' education issues
A plan of "tackling" and "grappling" failings in Wales' schools' system is under way, the education minister has said.
Huw Lewis told BBC Radio Wales it was a step-by-step process and he wanted to achieve "excellence in an international setting".
His comments come after a major report said the Welsh government lacks a long-term vision for education and does not do enough to support teachers.
The Welsh government asked the worldwide Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) to conduct the review in 2012.
The report praised "positive" learning conditions but found many weaknesses.
Mr Lewis spoke to Mai Davies.
