Commenting on the publication of the Estyn report on Powys County Council Labour group leader Cllr Matthew Dorrance said:
“Estyn’s report makes uncomfortable reading and the Cabinet must set out, as a priority, how they plan to fix their failures.
“The Inspectors themselves have said that the Council has failed to tackle issues it raised twelve years ago and that is not good enough.
“When the Cabinet brings forward plans that support schools and enables them to give our children and young people the education they deserve, they will have the full support of Labour Councillors but we will not back them while they dither and duck the big decisions.
“Children’s Services, Social Care and now our Education Service are failing under this Tory and Independent-run Council. Once again, they are letting down people who rely on these vital public services, and the hardworking staff trying their best to make a difference.”
