"Do you not wish there would be a mechanism in there to take powers back to this place to be able to sort out, just as the Welsh Assembly have the powers to put local authorities under special measures and hospitals into special measures."Don't you think there should be an opportunity for us to do the same?"
But Mr Cairns said people would be able to have their say at the assembly elections over the devolved matter
"I think that people, parents, will be able to express their disquiet at the ballot box and challenge the Welsh Government ministers and the Welsh Government as a whole on their success or failure of any particular area of policy,"A Welsh Labour spokesman said:
"Devolution is the settled will of the Welsh people, it's sad but unsurprising to see Tory politicians advocating overriding a democratic decision in such a way."Rather than pointless politicking, maybe Mr Davies should look to devolution for some inspiration."
"We remain confident that our emphasis on leadership, teacher development and collective responsibility - rather than grammar schools - will continue to drive up standards in our system.Was Chris Davies being serious or was it simply an orchestrated move to highlight the issue of the perceived failure of the Welsh Education system?
"The hard work is underway, but we recognise there is more to do."
It is a threat however that my get some support in that the Ballot Box solution looks remote.
After 17 years of Devolution, Labour;s Hegemony remains intact but removing powers and returning them to Westminster because the people of Wales have been constantly voting for the "wrong" party cannot be the answer.
It is up to the other parties to raise their game and come up with solutions to the failings in Welsh Education.
One way would be that the problems may not lie with the Schools but that to many parents are products of a vicious circle where their parents did not support or encourage them to work and in school and now pass it on to their own offspring.
One of the elements of Welsh Language Education in that Non-Welsh speakers who seek their children to have an education through the medium of Welsh will attend Adult classes in Welsh at the same time. So they can be part of their offspring education,
Perhaps we should be seeking not to make changes in our Schools but increase the availability Adult classes in attempt to break this circle of failure.
I wonder when we look at the success of other countries like Finland why we do not look at factors outside normal schooling and whether the parents also are continuing their education.
It might be a Chicken or Egg thing , but it had to start somewhere.
We need a revolution in Welsh Education, but maybe it should start not in the Schools but in the Colleges and Classes for Adults.
