I was really taken aback by the plans that are being propsed for secondary schools in Powys. I have been fully aware of the funding problems with education in the county, but I'm surprised and horrified by what seems to be proposed.
I think all parties will need to come together on this issue, and fight any closures which could have a hugely detrimental impact on education in the county, particularly welsh-language provision. We'll also need to come together to fight for a better financial settlement so that Powys can afford education.
Before commeting further, I would like to see the plans formally announced tomorrow. But it's hugely worrying.
