Labour: Stephen Twigg says Gove is undermining standards in reading

Labour press release

Stephen Twigg MP, Labour's Shadow Education Secretary, commenting on the new English tests for 11 year olds said:

"Michael Gove is undermining standards in reading and writing by cutting back programmes such as Every Child a Reader, which provided one to one and catch up tuition for primary school children.

"We know how important the 3Rs are for the economy, and for children’s future life chances. Only under Labour’s plans would every child study English and Maths from the age of 5 to the age of 18, giving them a firm foundation in the core subjects."
