Remember what 's' stands for

1st February 2013 at 00:00

May I respond to John Greenlees's article on the importance and relevance of Scottish literature (TESS, 18 January), which is now pinned on my wall, by asking why the EIS continues to oppose a mandatory question on Scottish literature in the Higher English exam? Does the union need reminding of what the "S" in EIS stands for?
