I don't know why I'm shocked by this, but this latest story, about how the Scottish Government have failed our children, is terrible...

Scottish schoolchildren 'fell off radar' without electronic help
Many Scottish children struggling in education before Covid "fell off the radar" in the first few months of the pandemic, a children rights charity has told politicians.

Dr Colin Morrison, a co-director at Children's parliament, says there could be a "legacy of disengagement" for some pupils who lacked electronic devices to access online learning materials - the consequences of which might be "difficult to address".

Speaking to MSPs at the Education, Children and Young People Committee at Holyrood, Dr Morrison says many children the charity works with "were just gone to the education system" in the three or four months from March last year.

He adds: "What I also know is many head teachers we knew who love and care for their children were literally scrambling about and delivering devices every day, knocking on doors and making sure people had food, never mind digital devices."

Some call me stupid or naïve to trust the @BBCNews / @BBCScotlandNews & todays reports may have proved those folks right

@BBCsarahsmith stated that England had a much higher prevalence of the infection than Scotland; we know for a fact that this is not true & the @UKStatsAuth are investigating the claim.

Plus @AngusRobertson, captioned as Progress Scotland & not "SNP Member" or "exSNP MP"

@bbclaurak said that the Scottish Government had made the wearing of facemasks in shops compulsory/mandatory for the last seven days. Again, that is simply not true - it came into effect on the 10th of July - only 3 days ago.

So, @DerekMackaySNP has got SEVEN months to brush up on his creative writing

"The Finance Secretary said the new analysis would come out at the same time as the annual Government Expenditure and Revenue Scotland (GERS) numbers."

The thing is, he's already had since October 2019 to get this ready

I think he forgets who (looking at you, @JohnSwinney ) came up with this trope
