From proof reading this article I'm sure the editor like me went to one of these schools in Wolverhampton.This hasn't happened overnight and of course poverty, deprivation and employment is in the mix. I left school in the late 70's and cannot count the amount of talent that was here ranging from sport to academia but careers in such were not pursued because families were too poor to support their children, everything as gone full circle ,that's why extra money is being put into various parts of the city,and not forgetting when you look at the job adverts the council is forever looking for social workers.Schools and their advisers have failed to prepare themselves for children who are coming through requiring higher support needs ranging from communication to disability.But parents have a part to play in this are they supporting their kids with homework, getting involved in what the school is actually doing.

But lets not forget there are people up to now in Wolves from Wolves are putting Wolverhampton but also England on the World map

I would also like to add that comparing Wolverhampton to any where else would be wrong you have to look at demographics and other factors

WELL MR McFADDEN AS YOU HAVE BEEN A WOLVERHAMPTON MP SINCE 2005 A LOT OF THIS DEPREVATION HAS OCCURED ON YOUR WATCH.

YOU HAVE HAD ENOUGH TIME TO MAKE CHANGES THINGS SO PLEASE LET US KNOW WHAT YOU ARE GOING TO DO NOW.

Education failure is due to meddling councils and governments!

Let the teachers teach!

What really amuses me is Councillors with NOT ONE QUALIFICATION, most of whom are educated to a lower level than an average 16year old, Who don't even hold a cycling proficiency award, Once elected can and do decide education policy for 100,000 of midland children. Then the people wonder why its all a mess.
