All Learners in Scotland Matter - national discussion on education: summary report

A summary of the final report of the National Discussion on Education.

1. Introduction

1.1 The need for a National Discussion to establish a compelling, consensual and renewed vision for the future of Scottish education was highlighted in the Muir Review Putting Learners at the Centre: Towards a Future Vision for Scottish Education[1]. In that review, it was recommended that the National Discussion needed to be as inclusive as possible and not afford a “narrative privilege” to established education organisations. Acting on these recommendations, the Scottish Government and the Convention of Scottish Local Authorities (COSLA) agreed to co-convene a National Discussion on the future of Scottish education.

1.2 We were invited to be Independent Facilitators of this National Discussion and commenced work in July 2022. This report provides an overview of the National Discussion and outlines the vision, values and the high-level Call to Action (C2A) based upon all the evidence collected. This summary concludes by focusing on next steps.
