Vacancy here ...

Just received the written answers to the 'formal questions' that have been tabled for the Full Council meeting tomorrow ... one answer, in particular, seems pretty shocking to me:

Q - What is the number of schools, across all sectors, with acting or temporary head teachers?
A - 19 out of 147.

That's nearly 13% of all Edinburgh state schools with an acting or temporary Head Teacher!

Having 1 in every 8th school in the capital city with no permanent Head Teacher currently in place does not seem like a positive indicator to me?
