Closing the gap
Children in Scotland were delighted to facilitate and host the Scottish Government's Closing the Gap summit, on Wednesday 4 December. The morning was filled with a mix of strategy and practical examples of ongoing work to tackle the inequality present in education. Closing the gap and raising attainment amongst some of our most deprived communities and most disadvantaged children was acknowledged to be a "stubborn and elusive problem" and one to which there will be no quick fix. However, with joint working, communication and new, targeted approaches, changes can be made.
