I love the way they've circled 'UK' in the graph. Just in case you can't spot it hidden in there.

nearly 1 in 10 have low educational acheivement. so 9 in 10 are doing pretty well then....

They've done a classic trick with the teen drinking graph too - cut it off at 35% which makes 33% (UK figure) look at first glance like 95%. Tsk

Yeah Riven but we all know thate ducational achievement sin't worth the aper it's written on, we're dumbing down and need a return to national service LOL <<sob>>

<snigger> They must be so annoyed that the OECD report has also said that the consequences of growing up in a single parent family are actually not very much if you factor in all the other variables like money.

I notice they didn't focus on that bit of the report...

Own up, who posted a comment and signed it Juan Kerr?

LOL at Juan Kerr - he posted something quite good.

Liked Lisa in Richmond or wherever it was as well and Tom in London's rejoinder.
