Education Reform: consulting with children and young people

Professor Ken Muir is currently conducting a consultation on education reform for Scottish Government. 

Children’s Parliament, Scottish Youth Parliament and Together have been working to involve children and young people in this consultation. We developed toolkits and an online survey.

We have had an amazing response.

  • 1,210 primary school aged children engaged with the online or downloadable toolkits, taking part in conversations facilitated by adults known to them. This included 53 Members of Children’s Parliament.
  • 394 secondary school aged children and young people engaged with the toolkit designed for them, again facilitated by an adult known to them. This included 25 Members of SYPs Learner Panel
  • 3,889 12 to 18 year olds responded to the online survey.

We are now writing a report based on everything we have heard.

We will publish on this page soon.
