Plaid Attack their Own Education Record

March 8, 2011 3:30 PM

Jenny Randerson AMNerys Evans' speech today outlines Plaid's Education policy as well as their own failure. Welsh Liberal Democrat Education spokesperson, Jenny Randerson AM, said:

"It is astonishing that Plaid Cymru have decided to attack their own record in Government. They have been in Government for four years and have not even tried to close the funding gap of over £600 per pupil per year.

"This speech is full of nationalist rhetoric but short on solutions. They have failed to set out real plans to address the funding gap in our schools or to help invest in high-quality teaching. Those are the Welsh Liberal Democrat priorities.

"Instead Plaid Cymru have outlined exactly what is wrong with their own record in Government and only presented a handful of gimmicks to the people of Wales. This is not the radical solution that Wales needs, it is a smokescreen to avoid the fundamental issue of underfunding of our children's schools.
