The RSE has responded to the Scottish Parliament Education and Skills Committee’s consideration of the performance of Scotland’s education agencies: the Scottish Funding Council; the Scottish Qualifications Authority and Education Scotland. In its latest response, the RSE focuses on the work of Education Scotland. Given its responsibilities for curriculum development and support, the RSE questions whether Education Scotland can be considered an independent evaluator. The RSE also asks how Education Scotland’s priorities are determined and how does it balance meeting the needs of schools and teachers with its responsibilities for delivering Scottish Government priorities i.e. who does it see as being its main ‘customer’?
The response on the performance of Education Scotland is available below:
