The Scottish Government has launched a consultation on the content of a new Education Bill which will empower schools and strengthen the role of parents. The consultation is open from 7th November 2017 - 30th January 2018. It's an online survey (link below) and anyone can respond whether as an individual or on behalf of a group. The Parent Council will make a group response, but individual parents may wish to make their own personal response.

John Swinney (Deputy First Minister and Cabinet Secretary for Education and Skills) writes: 

"The reforms which the Bill will bring about will enable decisions about the education of those children to be taken by the people who know that child best – their parents, their teachers, their school and their community."
