Specialist school boards could free up cash

Scotland's leading teaching union claim specified boards could leave more money for frontline services.

EIS are questioning the roles of local authorities in running schools and managing education policy.

They want the government to seriously consider reducing their involvement as they believe it will cut costs.

The union says schools could then be controlled by dedicated education boards that would be more centralised and able to deliver the Scottish governments priorities like the Curriculum for Excellence.
