SSTA concern over English Curriculum proposal

Today the SSTA expressed concern about the proposal to include as mandatory a list of Scottish text in the English Curriculum in Scottish Schools. Alan McKenzie Acting General Secretary said “a significant number of our members have contacted us questioning from whom this policy emanated and seeking clarification on its purpose. It seems surprising that such exhortation is necessary since English Curriculum in most schools include a significant number of Scottish texts. It would be interesting to identify just what the true extent of the problem is at the moment it is unclear.
