"James Reed Still Trying To Hide His Failures"
Exam results from each school in Jersey should be made public, a panel looking into the issue has advised.
The Education and Home Affairs Scrutiny Panel has published a review on the island's policy for publishing results like GCSE's and A Levels.
John Mills, a former senior civil servant in Jersey, has campaigned for exam results to be made public because he was concerned that Jersey schools performed unfavourably with those in the UK - where they freely publish their results.
The Education Minister, Deputy James Reed, says focusing on exam statistics puts unfair pressure on the schools.
But Deputy Roy Le Herissier, who chairs the panel, argues there must be more openness when reporting school performance.
Can't anyone, just for once, be open and honest in Jersey???
