How to deliver excellence and equity in Scottish education was published on 15 June 2017.
The project partners Young Scot, Children in Scotland and the Scottish Youth Parliament delivered Excite.Ed between September 2016 and January 2017. Excite.Ed involved working with children and young people to understand their perspectives as experts of their own experience, and identify the changes needed in order for the Scottish Government to realise its ambition of an improved and fairer education system in Scotland.
The Excite.Ed project kicked off in late September 2016. It focused on the governance review being undertaken by the Scottish Government which is seeking to deliver excellence and equity in Scottish education.
The project was motivated by the defining mission of the Scottish Government to raise attainment and make demonstrable progress in closing the gap between those children and young people who are the least and most disadvantaged.
The project partners worked together through a range of direct engagement activities with children and young people to understand their perspective as experts of their own experience, and of the changes needed if ambitions for Scottish education are to be achieved.
