Have all of you read Kenneth Roy’s article ‘We are sleepwalking into an authoritarian Scotland' in this week’s Scottish Review? If not here’s the link. It’s essential reading.
I’m not going to dwell on the content because most of you know my feelings about ‘Evidence2Success’.
What angers me most about this latest development is the duplicity of my own council Perth and Kinross, Angus council and others who are participating willingly in this appalling intrusion into family life. Do these people truly believe that changing the name of one of their pet projects will make it more acceptable to the parents of the children involved and also the wider society?
I have contacted my MSP to express my disgust at this programme being continued.
Unfortunately the Scottish Government have complete control of education and therefore voting No in the referendum will not alter the situation. All of us need to protest loudly and tell our political representatives that this policy is not acceptable in this country.
