Following the news that a fresh pay offer has been made to teachers, Scottish Liberal Democrat education spokesperson Tavish Scott MSP commented:
“Strikes in schools do not help anyone. But the wrath and frustration of teachers across Scotland has been obvious for some time.
“I welcome the improved offer from the Scottish Government and their belated admission that pay and conditions do need to be independently assessed. That is a point I have been making for months.
“It will be for teachers to now decide, but the government must hold their side of the bargain. That means real and lasting attention on the reasons why teachers have been so fed up with them.”
