EDUCATION – TEACHING METHODS & STANDARDS – 7 July 1999

Dr Julian Lewis: I entirely agree with the hon. Lady's last point. Does she accept that such damage is done long before the age of 11 is reached? Will she, therefore, join me in recommending that the results of the tests that are already done at seven should be published, so that parents can put pressure on failing schools at that stage?
