From early years to university, Scottish Greens believe education is a right. We have schools and colleges to be proud of, but they have seen years of cuts. Scotland’s educators are working flat out with an unsustainable workload. Green MSPs will fight for an end to Scottish government-led austerity to pay for more teachers, close the attainment gap and create more opportunities for everyone who wants to gain a place at college or university.
The Scottish Greens believe that people should have equal access to quality and inspiring education throughout their lifetimes. We want our schools, colleges and universities to be places that foster curiosity, creativity and growth, and where educators are supported to put learning before grades. With an innovative curriculum, greater financial support and increased teaching capacity, we believe we can nurture the skills needed for Scotland’s society and economy.
