Empowering Schools - Education Bill Consultation Launched

7 Nov 2017

Kenneth Gibson MSP is encouraging anyone in North Ayrshire with an interest in the future of education in Scotland to contribute to the Scottish Government’s new consultation on the Education (Scotland) Bill.


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.


Kenneth Gibson commented:


“Our teachers in North Ayrshire deserve our unreserved praise for the education they are providing our young people, day in and day out.


“With more of our young people getting excellent exam results and going onto a job, training or continuing their studies we have so much to be positive about.


“The SNP Government aims of making children, parents and teachers more empowered by moving decision-making as close to them as possible, a proposal that’s informed by strong international research which shows that empowering schools and engaging parents ultimately leads to a better education. 


“I encourage anyone in North Ayrshire with an interest in the future of education in Scotland  to makes their views known by participating in this important consultation. The consultation closes on 30 January 2018 and can be accessed via the link below."
