The Scottish Government cannot organise anything on their own without help from other governments. Everything to do with schools from the reopening and blended model, general communication and exams fiasco has been appalling!

It is tragic that schools were closed and this is one occasion when i would have expected that learning could continue throughout the summer months.The feeling that i am getting is that it is the teachers who are concerned, not the pupils nor the majority of the parents.What does it say about us as a country that we are not prepared to put the education of our children before the economy - they are the future economy?
