Quality Education is crucial

Every child in East Ayrshire deserves the best start in life and that means a good quality education in schools that are fit for the demands of the twenty first century.

Over recent years many local schools have been refurbished or rebuilt in Kilmarnock East & Hurlford and I am advocating that more funding becomes available for a further improvement programmes for East Ayrshire Schools.

My pledge if elected on the 3 May is to:

  • improve standards in our schools for all pupils
  • close the attainment gap between the richest and poorest
  • ensure we have safe classrooms
  • ensure we have talented and specialist teachers
  • ensure access to the best curriculum and exams,
  • have smaller schools with smaller class sizes.

These may not seem like big things however they are to the many families I have spoken to over the past few years and that is why I will be pushing for these pledges to become a reality.
