Motion ref. S6M-06102.3

Excellence in Scottish Education - Amendment

Submitted by: Stephen Kerr, Central Scotland, Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party.
Date lodged: Wednesday, September 28, 2022

Current status: Taken in the Chamber on Thursday, September 29, 2022

As an amendment to motion S6M-06102 in the name of Shirley-Anne Somerville (Excellence in Scottish Education), leave out from "recognises that, despite" to end and insert "expresses concern that the Scottish Government remains complacent about education in Scotland with fewer teachers, larger class sizes, a growing attainment gap, lower levels of numeracy and literacy and a lack of school inspections demonstrating its neglect of Scottish education; notes that the Scottish Government has broken its promises on class sizes and failed to support teachers and pupils in the classroom, and further notes that the withdrawal from international comparisons and a lack of decent measurement of outcomes has shielded the Scottish Government from proper scrutiny while its reforms to Education Scotland and the Scottish Qualifications Authority appear set to amount to nothing more than cosmetic changes."
