Commenting on figures showing 22% of Pupil Equity Funding in Scotland is going unspent, Scottish Labour’s education spokesperson Iain Gray said:

“This is not a new programme, yet even after two years it is not working as effectively as it should, with over a fifth of funds available not being spent.

“The SNP government management of the scheme must be clearer and more transparent.

“Our schools face years of budget cuts and cuts to teacher numbers while the attainment gap remains stubbornly in place, yet vital money is not being fully deployed.

“If we are to close Scotland’s attainment gap, the government must examine the effectiveness of the PEF programme at a national level.”
