Petitioner: Kenneth Drysdale


Date Lodged: 20 August 2019

Calling on the Scottish Parliament to urge the Scottish Government to conduct an urgent review to identify children who are not registered with an Education Authority in Scotland and are being denied a basic human right to access an education suitable to age, ability and aptitude.

What potential consequences do you think this loophole brings?

Do you have any suggestions on how the situation should be addressed?

I am very concerned that there is no register for children, no method of assessment, no level of attainment required, and minors are being denied access to education and a basic human right.
