Current proposals to reform the £5bn per year Scottish education system could expose schools to significant financial risks, according to the Chartered Institute of Public Financial Management (CIPFA) Scotland.
“We hope the reform will bring about the desired change but CIPFA believes that structural changes alone will not deliver improvements to educational outcomes. We need only look to England to see how academisation has delivered a raft of failures in school governance and financial management, and has not succeeded in delivering any significant improvement in educational attainment.”
CIPFA’s submission to the Scottish Government on Empowering Teachers, Parents and Communities to Achieve Excellence and Equity in Education: A Governance Review is available from the CIPFA press office.
