In response to recent disappointing test results, England has announced a plan to raise English and maths achievement among primary-school students. The plan calls for small-group sessions and one-on-one tutoring during lunch, as well as interventions for students who do not meet certain standards. "The consequences for a pupil being left behind in the basics when they start secondary school can last for the rest of their education," Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg said. "Every child should have the chance to succeed and get off on the right foot when they start their new school."
