UK schools 'below Estonia and Poland' in OECD rankings


The UK has fallen in the international school rankings for reading, maths and science with British 15-year-olds now lower than Poland, Norway and Estonia.

Jim Murphy said: "We did make progress" and added there was a "massive improvement" in GCSE results when asked why the Labour government doubled education spending but Britain fell in the OECD table.

Mr Murphy asked for reaction from viewers and they have been added to our Dear Daily Politics page.
