Westernal Mail denies evidence of Ceredigion

Education editor, Gareth Evans, in today’s Western Mail argues that “smaller Welsh councils suffer from a lack of capacity and many lack the understanding needed to oversee wholesale change”. He manages to make this assertion when reporting the wholly positive report on Ceredigion by Estyn, ignoring the fact that with a population of 75,000 Ceredigion is one of Wales’ smallest local authorities. On the evidence of school bands the even smaller authorities of Anglesey and Denbighshire out-perform Ceredigion. And still, the Western Mail argues that ‘big is best’.
