Rural Education Commission

The Commission on Rural Education is seeking views on how to maximise the attainment and achievement of children and young people in rural areas of Scotland.

Individuals and organisations from across Scotland are invited to provide their views.

Commission Chair, Sheriff David Sutherland, said:

"This Commission has the potential to make real improvements to life chances of children and young people across rural Scotland. I would encourage anyone with a view on any aspect of the delivery of rural education to take this opportunity to have their voice heard.

"The responses to this Call for Evidence will be essential to the Commission's considerations and final recommendations."

Established in July 2011, the Commission on Rural Education is tasked with examining how the delivery of education in rural areas can maximise the attainment, achievement and life chances of the young people living in those areas of Scotland. The Commission will also review the Schools (Consultation) (Scotland) Act 2010 and its application. The Commission is committed to ensuring all key stakeholders have the opportunity to contribute to its work, and to ensuring its work is underpinned by hard evidence.

The Commission's call for evidence opens from October 13, 2011 and will run until January 12, 2012.
