It’s Thursday so it must be Sharp End. A lot of tonight’s programme will be dedicated – just as a lot of the last political week has been – to education. Three sets of statistics in a row have put what’s happening in our schools firmly in the spotlight in terms of individual performance, international comparison and how much – or how little – they’re funded compared with England.
Plenty then to discuss with the Education minister Leighton Andrews and his opposite numbers Jenny Randerson and Paul Davies.
Esyllt Carr has been down on the farm as a potential area of conflict emerges between Cardiff Bay and Westminster over the future of European Union payouts.
Join me and my guests Huw Irranca-Davies, the Labour MP for Ogmore; Jake Griffiths, the leader of the Wales Green Party and former headteacher Mal Davies for Sharp End, 1035pm ITV1 Wales.
