Commenting on the SNP government's misuse of education statistics in a new report on the condition of schools, Scottish Labour’s education spokesperson, Iain Gray MSP, said:

“The First Minister and her government have been caught out making dodgy comparisons against the advice of their own officials.

“Official guidance contained within the report clearly warns against comparing figures from this year to previous years. Schools may not have improved at all, just been recategorized.

“Instead of spin, the SNP should be focussed on fixing the problems they continue to create in Scottish education.

“Nicola Sturgeon and the Education Secretary must explain why they ignored official advice in order to chase positive press headlines.”
