Fair Funding Consultation - EIS Response

Created on: 25 Jan 2018 | Last modified: 24 Aug 2018


As Scotland's largest Education union, representing over 55,000 members across all sectors and grades, the EIS (Educational Institute of Scotland) welcomes the opportunity to set out below our initial response to the consultation questions with a view to contributing to the debate about where change might advance and support effective teaching and learning and the well-being of students and staff, and where stability might achieve the same objective.

The EIS shares the Government's stated aims of raising attainment and seeking to address the poverty related attainment gap.

The EIS strongly believes that change needs to be evidence based, planned by educationalists with recent practical experience of schools, to have stakeholder support, and to be delivered within a realistic timeline with appropriate resources underpinned by local democratic accountability.
