“Inquiry into education” – Herald

A WIDE-RANGING inquiry into Scotland’s education system has been launched.

Think-tanks Reform Scotland and the Centre for Scottish Public Policy have set up a panel of experts.

The Commission on School Reform will be led by Keir Bloomer, an ex-president of the Association of Directors of Education.

He said the commission will examine whether schools are still enabling young people, especially those from disadvantaged backgrounds, to fulfil their potential.
