Commenting on the results of the Behaviour in Scottish Schools Research (BiSS) published by the Scottish Government today, Scottish Liberal Democrat education spokesperson Willie Rennie said:

“It’s no surprise that behaviour and violence in schools is a problem but this official research uncovers the depth of the crisis.

"Teachers and pupils have been ringing the alarm bells for a long time but the government have been turning a deaf ear. 

"We now need a plan of action from government that includes resources, support, boundaries and consequences. The SNP have a real challenge ahead of them. We will support them if they produce the right plan.”
