Popularity Of Scottish Gaelic Education 'Underestimated'

News from the Celtic League:

There is controversy surrounding Gaelic education however on this occasion the rancour is caused because of the popularity of Gaelic Language education and the need to expand accommodation for it (see link):


It is felt there has been to little consultation about changes needed to cope with the growth in demand although it seems now the Regions Education Chairman Drew Miller is now conceding the necessary dialogue will take place;

Mr Millar said:

“To be fair, I don’t think anybody could have estimated the popularity of 
bilingual education.

“That’s why one of the proposals acknowledges that there may be the need for a two-stream school.”
