Iberian education

Spain is just below the OECD mean on both GDP per capita and learning skills. Catalonia, being a rich region, is slightly better than the national average and does worst in reading skills, probably because half the population are prevented from learning in their mother tongue. The regional education councillor, Marta Cid, is incredibly proud of the low spread between good and bad students, this presumably being some kind of Marxist wet dream. I suspect that future results will not make pretty reading. (Via Notes al Marge.)
