Have your say in the future of Scottish education

John Swinney, the Deputy First Minister and Cabinet Secretary for Education and Skills, is seeking your views on how education in Scotland is run. This includes who should take decisions in relation to the education of children and young people, and how funding can be made fairer.

The consultation document is called ‘Empowering teachers, parents and communities to achieve Excellence and Equity – A governance review’. 

Please visit the link to the review on the Scottish Government website:

The consultation period will run until 6 January 2017.

The review is an opportunity for children and young people, parents, teachers, practitioners and the wider community to share their views on how schools in Scotland are run. The Scottish Government want to hear from as many people as possible. People are encouraged to respond to the review in writing or attend one of several engagement events to be held across Scotland.
