"What is the extent of this failure?
95.9% of school leavers gained one pass or more at SCQF Level 4 (e.g. National 4) or better, (a decrease from 96.2% in 2017-18)
So, a drop of 0.3% in the course of one-year, statistically insignificant on both counts – size and timescale – means the Scottish Government is failing pupils? This headline goes way beyond the misleading to become dishonest and disgusting."
