Pupils speak about importance of school librarians

"Last month, Argyll and Bute Council, one of Scotland’s most rural authorities, agreed to remove the 10 posts, which will eventually save it £319,000 a year."

"This was despite the idea stirring up huge controversy, with critics including well-known authors Christopher Brookmyre, Debi Gliori and James Robertson. Gliori contrasted the move with the billions of pounds spent on locating Trident nuclear weapons in Argyll and Bute."

"The new video includes several pupils from Tobermory High School on the Isle of Mull speaking about the importance of the school librarian. The 230-pupil all-through school includes the only secondary provision on the Isle of Mull. The island has no public library and fewer than 3,000 permanent residents. Pupils also use the video to talk about the council cutting the island’s mobile library service, which helped bring books to Mull’s primary schools."

One excuse for pushing out surveys in classrooms is so that the government can analyse the data and provide better services for children.

The lie is exposed because everywhere essential services are being cut which impact on children`s wellbeing.

Meanwhile the Scotsman has reported that £61 million has been allocated to introduce the totally unnecessary Named Person scheme.
