Class sizes of '18 pupils or less for Primary 1 to Primary 3' are not going to happen prior to 2011.
I know you've heard me say it before - but it really is time the SNP faced up to that blunt truth ...
... today's BBC coverage on this issue surely makes it plain to everyone that the promise was, frankly, nothing short of a con-trick.
Without legislation, it isn't going to happen - and it's no good banging on about class sizes being lower this year than last ... that's not the point: the point is that the 'promise' was:
"we will reduce class sizes in Primary 1, 2 and 3 to eighteen pupils or less."
