* The Observer. The Government must provide the resources to back its rhetoric The Government has said education is its top priority. Its reforms are in place - what have been lacking are resources. It should now commit to reducing class-sizes in all state primary schools to below those in the private sector within three years. It should also address chronic shortages in teaching and lecturing personnel by raising salary levels over and above current commitments. It could and should commit to the longer-term aim of reducing class-sizes similarly in all secondary schools.

Education, for all the rhetoric, has so far been short-changed.

Leader, Sunday.
