Newsflash from Scotland - May 2016
Scottish Parent Teacher Council has published the latest issue of their termly publication, Backchat. Inside they announce that they are introducing a new membership framework for 2016-2017 which is based on a 1 to 4 star model and allows parent councils more freedom in deciding which benefits and services they require. Furthermore, the pricing structure is being changed in order to make things fairer for parent councils of smaller schools.
The issue also contains news on The Year of the Dad, which aims to make 2016 a year of celebration, insight and collaboration to promote the importance of fathers in child development. The campaign will not only be holding events across Scotland based around fatherhood but will be calling on employers and services to update their practices in order to reflect this importance.
