LETTER : Giving children the best

COULD I criticise your otherwise excellent editorial for your failure to comment on the Scottish education system which is very different from the one described by you as British? Not only are there separate examinations, but the majority of children from all classes go to local authority academies. The few fee-paying schools have traditionally catered for the "rich of average IQ; the aspiring Edinbughers and the English".
