Neil Carberry, CBI Director for People and Skills policy, yesterday said:

“The drop in England’s overall performance will be a concern to businesses as well as to thousands of school teachers across the country who are doing a very challenging job.  

“It’s particularly concerning as in the CBI’s latest report on regional growth our research shows that the fundamental driver of economic performance is education. 

“The most effective response to today’s findings is focusing on what works across mathematics, reading and science – high-quality school leadership and great teachers delivering an engaging curriculum which includes strong basic skills, attitudes and behaviours that can equip young people to succeed. 

“Alongside this, businesses have a key role to play in improving every school across the country through joining governing bodies, offering clear routes to high-quality apprenticeships, careers advice and work experience, regardless of a young person’s background or where they live.”
