Opinion – Advantage Britain: ruling the education world post-Brexit | THE Comment -The Times Higher Education – John Gelmini

The UK’s state education system (ages 5 to 18), is 44th in the world overall and is about 30th for literacy and numeracy. 1 child in 4 cannot read, cannot write and cannot communicate; we have 1.5 million non job ready NEETS and we are not teaching languages, time management or a “can do ” attitude.

Our teachers in the UK are substandard and are unable to discipline unruly pupils and there are not enough male role models.

Given these problems, it is going to take a generation for the UK to even catch up so the article that Dr Alf has forensically pulled apart is nonsense and has little to do with BREXIT or any related subject.
