There are four days left for people to have their say on how schools should be run.

The Scottish Government’s governance review consultation is due to close on Friday.

Under the proposal local councils could also lose some responsibilities and may have to pass control of some of their education budgets to headteachers.

Some direct decision making would be made by schools.

Deputy First Minister John Swinney said the aim is to “empower teachers to take the decisions necessary to improve children’s attainment.”

Mr Swinney insisted the review will “not end up with the Scottish Government running schools, the divisive academy model or a return to selection or grammar schools.”
