School League Tables 2012: 107 Secondaries Fail To Meet Government Targets

Thousands of teenagers are being let down by under-performing schools, despite tough government targets introduced to raise standards, new league tables have revealed.

More than 100 secondaries in England did not meet the targets while young people are still failing to get good GCSE results.

Ministers took a tougher stance toward education institutions in 2010, saying schools failing to meet the strict thresholds face closure or being taken over if they do not improve.
