"The schools scrapheap"?

I've just about recovered from the sheer excitement of the Policy and Strategy Committee earlier this morning - it lasted all of 20-minutes :-((

... Evening Times today (over in Glasgow) has yet more damning evidence of the reality of trying to find your first teaching job over on the West-coast of the country - not good.

Of course, the problem could be solved very quickly if the Government actually funded its key education, manifesto-pledge to "reduce class sizes in Primary 1, 2 and 3 to eighteen pupils or less."

Do have a read at the article ... it says an awful lot about the mess that's been made of Local Government finance in the last couple of years :-(
