COSLA RESPONSE TO SCOTTISH GOVERNMENT PRESS RELEASE - INCREASING INVESTMENT IN EDUCATION

A COSLA Spokesperson said: “We welcome the announcement by Scottish Government that recognises that local authorities have increased their spending in education – over and above that which is identified as education spending in the Scottish Government settlement – this shows that councils are a safe  of hands for public finance – ensuring value for money and quality above all else. At the moment, headteachers are supported by qualified financial experts and work within a clear public accountability framework. These points cannot be ignored by Scottish Government as they begin their consultation exercise on school funding.”
