Yesterday afternoon the OECD Report was discussed in the Scottish Parliament.
The full transcript makes interesting reading. There is the odd lapse into political point scoring (as you would expect in any democratic parliament). My reading of what was said by our MSPs is that it was generally a thoughtful and constructive debate around the main themes of the report. There seemed to me to be a good level of understanding of the strengths of our education system and more importantly a high degree of consensus around the areas we need to address if we are to improve it.
