Julian Stanley, CEO of Education Support Partnership said:
“Yet again the latest PISA figures demonstrate the paramount importance of investment and respect for education and educators. Singapore and other leading nations invest heavily in a system with a long-term vision where teachers are highly respected and supported to perform their role successfully.
“There are few signs of improvement for the UK and a sharp decline in Scotland’s performance. We know from supporting struggling teachers and anyone working in education that investment in their professional development and wellbeing is essential if we are to deliver to all young people across the UK for the future.”
