The Scottish Parliament’s Education and Culture Committee is undertaking work on the educational attainment gap in schools. The Committee is keen to include as many people as possible in its work and would therefore welcome any views you care to submit.
As a first step, the Committee has agreed to hold separate evidence sessions on the following topics—
- the implications for schools, teachers and pupils of the Commission for Developing Scotland’s Young Workforce.
- the role of the third sector and the private sector in improving attainment for all school pupils, particularly those whose attainment is lowest.
- how parents (including guardians) and schools can best work together to raise all pupils’ attainment, particularly those whose attainment is lowest.
Detailed information on the Committee’s work and these evidence sessions is available on our website (please click here). This includes information on how to make a written submission, the deadlines for doing so and how we will treat your submission.
Once all written submissions have been received, the Committee will hold meetings at the Scottish Parliament to discuss the topics above in more depth. If you would like to be involved in these discussions, please let me know. There is no guarantee, however, that your request will be agreed by the Committee.
