As we approach local Council elections, it is important that Education is centre stage in terms of the political debate.

The EIS Manifesto outlines key EIS policies and principles and we would encourage teachers, parents, and voters to use it as a tool to question candidates and political parties on their educational priorities.

Schools are key to local communities. It is important, therefore, that they are responsive to local needs and demands and that they are well resourced to deliver high quality educational experiences for young people and their families.

The EIS has no party-political links and would never endorse one party over another; we are not neutral, however, in recognising the importance of Education to pupils, parents, and local communities.

The EIS believes in standing up for Scottish Education.

Use your vote to do the same.
