Narrow choice

10th December 2010 at 00:00

So, Banchory Academy parents have protested at the problem of lack of subject breadth for pupils after S3?

This issue has been raised with the Government by the SSTA on a number of occasions, as part of our long-standing and consistent opposition to this and other features of CfE implementation. Our council meets on January 15, when we will consider whether to proceed with a ballot on industrial action in those local authorities which are unable to provide the assurances we seek on subject choice for secondary pupils.
