CBI asks Welsh government for urgent action on education

The Confederation of British Industry (CBI) has called on the Welsh government to take urgent action over the state of education in Wales.

A schools inspectors report found 40% of children reached secondary school with a reading ability below their age.

The CBI also points to international Pisa statistics from 2010 which found the attainment levels of Welsh 15-year-olds was behind much of the world.
