Wishaw Press - - FRONT PAGE -

The pub­lic is be­ing en­cour­aged to con­trib­ute to the Scot­tish Gov­ern­ment’s con­sul­ta­tion on the Ed­u­ca­tion (Scot­land) Bill.

MSP for Air­drie & Shotts Alex Neil is en­cour­ag­ing any­one with an in­ter­est in the fu­ture of ed­u­ca­tion in Scot­land to take part.

The Bill guar­an­tees new pow­ers for head teach­ers and en­sures that young peo­ple and par­ents have a stronger say in de­ci­sions about chil­dren’s learn­ing and de­vel­op­ment.

SNP mem­ber Mr Neil said: “Our teach­ers de­serve our un­re­served praise for the ed­u­ca­tion they are pro­vid­ing our young peo­ple, day in and day out.

“It is re­ally im­por­tant that any­one in Air­drie and Shotts with an in­ter­est in the fu­ture of ed­u­ca­tion in Scot­land takes time, be­fore Jan­uary 30, to con­trib­ute to the Scot­tish Gov­ern­ment’s con­sul­ta­tion on the new Ed­u­ca­tion Bill.”
