Education - Our Children; an online conference in 2020

A section to discuss the issue of what is being taught to children in our schools.

Education Our ChildrenThis area of the website will include articles and links to resources, information and signposting. It will also allow secure discussion on the subject.

There will shortly be included here links to all video recordings of an over-subscribed  Zoom conference in May 2020 at which four speakers addressed the subject of the curriculum and what is being taught in our children's classrooms. Although the principle target audience was the Highlands and Islands many of those who attended were from other parts of Scotland. This illustrated the broad and widespread concern on this very important issue.
