About the Author

Gareth Evans has been the Education Correspondent of the national newspaper of Wales, The Western Mail, since December 2009. He was educated at Cardiff University and lives in the Vale of Glamorgan.


"Gareth is Wales' most incisive commentator on education. He has built a reputation for fair and fearless analysis that gets beyond the spin." Lee Waters, Director, Institute of Welsh Affairs "Gareth is distinguished and trusted because he is a master of data mining and data, basing his reporting only on evidence rather than belief. " Sir John Cadogan, former Director General of the UK Research Councils and inaugural President of the Learned Society of Wales "Gareth provides the perspective of an analytical, insightful, bold and fearless writer whose primary motivation is to see the Welsh education system become increasingly successful. I am convinced that the issues raised in A Class Apart are applicable internationally. There are many lessons which we can all learn from the Welsh experience and the strategies that they have employed." Dr Avis Glaze, former Chief Student Achievement Officer of Ontario
