Schools at centre of their communities
SIR, – I don’t think anyone in Moray will dispute the facts of half-empty schools.
Councillor George Alexander states the public are rightly puzzled why we are cutting other services while nothing is being done about the money being spent on these half-empty buildings whilst providing an inefficient education.
I hope the councillor isn’t saying that half-empty buildings are causing sub-standard education?
Convener Shona Morrison is quite right in stating that schools are the beating heart of any community and every effort should be made to keep them. To do this, she suggests transforming them to become a vibrant part of their community.
I will give the Moray SNP minority administration the benefit of the doubt that this isn’t something in the way of a response to questions posed by the local press and that it is a policy that has been thought through.
