Update: Petition Responses…
After a delay of nearly 6 weeks,the parliament has now posted our petition demanding a public inquiry into the impact of the closures on the Scottish parliament website.
Hopefully we can get enough signatures to pressurize the MSPs on the Petition committee to invite us to address them, and highlight our concerns – particularly class sizes.
Please sign this petition and pass it on to as many others as possible.
Calling on the Scottish Parliament to urge the Scottish Government to conduct a public investigation into the impact the proposed closures of schools and nurseries by local authorities has on education policies, class sizes, childrens health and safety, social inclusion, jobs, and whether the process of consulting with parents and wider communities on the provision of education complies with local authorities statutory duties and democratic principles.
Please also sign the petition by Catherine Mitchell on asbestos in school buildings.
Calling on the Scottish Parliament to urge the Scottish Government to take action against those local authorities who have failed to implement a robust asbestos management plan and procedures for school buildings containing asbestos and ensure that parents and teachers who require data about asbestos in school buildings held by local authorities have full access to this.
