Scott warns education statement must end "doomed" national testing policy

Commenting ahead of John Swinney’s statement on national testing for P1s, Scottish Liberal Democrat education spokesperson Tavish Scott MSP said:

"The Education Secretary must tell teachers, parents and Parliament that the national testing of four and five year olds will end.

"We are now one month on from the unequivocal parliamentary vote to scrap this. Anything less and John Swinney will simply be prolonging a doomed policy, doing permanent damage to his reputation and embedding a disregard for teacher judgement at the heart of Government."
