SSTA responds to Cabinet Secretary's bullying

Colleagues

You may have noted from newspaper reports that the Scottish Government has threatened to remove the Association from the Management Board if we consult members on the implementation of Curriculum for Excellence.

It has also been suggested that at a time of financial difficulties we should be concentrating on protecting salaries and pensions.   I would simply ask what, in a time of recession, could be more important than the education of future generations.  

Executive meets on 1 Oct and Council on 2 Oct when this ultimatum will be debated and a decision made.    

In the meantime I wish to assure you that this Association will always strive to advance secondary education in Scotland, and to safeguard and promote the interests of Scottish secondary teachers in all matters.
