Commenting ahead of the EIS general meeting and plans for a national demonstration by teachers in Dundee City Square, Scottish Liberal Democrat education spokesperson Tavish Scott MSP said:
"Teachers want a fair financial settlement and a recognition of their workload. Schools have teaching vacancies across Scotland and this is why.
"So the Scottish Government need to immediately launch a new McCrone review, to properly assess teachers' terms and conditions. Teaching must be a valued, professional carer that people want to follow – that has to be the objective we should all share."
