The SNP have come under fire as Scotland’s schools have recorded their worst ever performance in an international survey of pupils.
Scotland’s scores for maths, reading and science have all declined in the latest PISA figures. Lib Dem leader Willie Rennie said, “After 10 years of SNP rule, we are not even as good as England anymore.”
The Liberal Democrats propose a ‘Penny for Education’ to support a Pupil Premium, an expansion in nursery education, reversal of college cuts and stopping school cuts.
Mr Rennie said: “Liberal Democrats have an ambitious plan to get Scotland back on track by making the biggest investment in education since devolution.”
Prospective Council Candidate Bryn Jones brings the campaign to Dunfermline North. Bryn says, “Scottish parents expect world leading schools. As a father and a council candidate, it is my ambition to see Scotland rise up the rankings and be the best in the world.”
