Their draft report shows they have digested much and perhaps even learnt a few things. Or have they? The report comments: "The committee notes that research appears to indicate that many of the motivational problems seem to emerge in the latter years of primary and early years of secondary education, and asks the Executive to consider whether any degree of priority should be given to this stage."

We could be wrong, but our impression on P6-S2 is that the Executive has hardly been talking about anything else.
