CampaignCraig Hoy Backs Open Our Schools Campaign

June 20, 2020

Craig Hoy, the Scottish Conservative and Unionist Candidate for East Lothian, has given his backing to the Open Our Schools Campaign.

The campaign calls for Scottish Government to plan for a fuller return of Scotland’s schools in August. Under current plans some pupils will receive as little as one or two days’ classroom teaching each week – putting the education and wellbeing of an entire generation at risk.

Hoy said: “The Scottish Government must ensure there is a Scotland-wide plan to maximise pupils’ time in school – and plan for a full return of schools in August if the health situation allows it. Scottish pupils are set to lose out on crucial learning from August unless the SNP does more to get our schools operating normally. Until we get our schools back we can’t get our economy back. For the sake of pupils, parents and the economy, we need to Open Our Schools.”
