A Commission on School Reform has been set up by the think tanks Reform Scotland and the Centre for Scottish Public Policy to consider whether the school system in Scotland is meeting the present and future needs of young people and to make specific recommendations as to how things might be improved or areas that require further enquiry.
They’re looking for evidence to inform their thinking…
To inform the work of the Commission, you are invited to offer your views on any matters that are relevant to the remit. Evidence from individuals as well as from organisations and professional bodies is welcome. It would be helpful if respondents considered the following questions:
What do you think are the main challenges facing Scottish schools and how are these best addressed?
Is Scottish education sufficiently ambitious?
What should it do to ensure that it meets future challenges and remains internationally competitive?
What are the outcomes for children and young people that we should hold as being most important?
It would be great if we could use Pedagoo to bring together our voices and make a submission…if you have any thoughts on any of the above questions, put them here. The deadline is Friday 29 June 2012.
