Woefully inadequate report on Edinburgh schools

Commenting on a report on PPP schools going to Edinburgh's Policy and Strategy Committee next week, Green Education spokesperson, Cllr Melanie Main said:


"This update report  is woefully inadequate in the detail it provides.  What is required is a full, in depth inquiry with a agreement on what the inquiry will cover.  It is neither clear who will make these decisions nor what will be included in scope, but, if it turns out that the Labour/SNP administration intend to make these decisions behind closed doors, that would be unacceptable.


"If the confidence of the public and school communities is to be restored this fiasco must be carefully examined so that the facts can be laid out honestly and publicly and the right steps be taken to ensure the council can provide safe, fit for purpose schools for our children well into the future."
