Scotsman paper mis-informed or poorly educated?
The Scotsman editorial slams the quality of the Scottish education system.
No one will say the system is perfect, but the consistent starvation
of englands schools by London, the lowering in quality of school exams
in an effort to have fun making ratings tables is NOT for Scotland
The Scottish parliament will have to act, but in Scotlands interests,
with news schools, more technology and exams that tax pupils at the
right times and not implement the mees that is now Englands system.
The Scottish teachers KNOW what must be done. Listen to them and
not to those who'd follow London over the cliff if the tune was right.
