Jargon and gobbledegook

NUT Cymru chief, Gethin Lewis, is absolutely right when he says in the Western Mail this morning that there is too much jargon and civil service speak in Welsh education.

The first thing I did when I became chair of the Assembly's Education and Lifelong Learning Committee was to have a glossary of acronyms drawn up. It is almost as if those running education are trying to create an aura of mystique around their role so as to protect their position. The 14-19 Learning Pathways report was a classic example of impenetrable prose.

The sooner we get rid of the gobbledegook and start talking in plain English (or Welsh) then the easier it will become to have a fully inclusive debate on the future of education in Wales.
