Numeracy Will Be the Biggest Highlight Of The New Year Speech Of Rishi Sunak
British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak is going to deliver his first speech of the year on Wednesday. And this speech is going to be important for the country in many ways. Rishi Sunak is expected to set priorities for 2023 and answer his critics in the government.
• Conservative Party wants assurance from Rishi Sunak that he is capable of leading the party to the next elections in 2024
• The opposition Labour Party is leading in opinion polls
What Will Rishi Sunak Say In His Speech?
Some excerpts of the speech released on Tuesday show that Rishi Sunak will set his priorities for the New Year to bring Britain out of the tailspin. Inflation is at its highest in 40 years and economists are anticipating a long recession.
Rishi Sunak will say the speech is personal to him. Every opportunity he had in life began with the education he was so fortunate to receive. He will force students to study some form of math up to the age of 18. He wants to give every child the highest possible standard of education and that is the single most important reason for his being in politics. He wants Britain to rival the best education system in the world.
His plans to introduce math to all students up to the age of 18 stems from the OECD findings that state that poor numeracy is affecting “particularly large proportions of adults in England”.
Rishi Sunak wants his countrymen to be less anxious about inflation, energy bills, and National Health Service. He wants them to feel pride in their country and trust in fairness. He wants to prove that he can lead the Conservative Party to the next elections due in 2024.
