Last year, children and young people shared their thoughts on what changes should be made to the education system. After listening to children and young people’s views, Professor Muir wrote a report on education reform to Scottish Government. A child-friendly version of the report is now available.

The report includes:

  • An introduction to Professor Muir and his role.
  • A section on what the Curriculum for Excellence does and what needs to change.
  • Information on what learners should know about with regards to Professor Muir’s work.
  • A section on what the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child say about children and young people’s education.

Scottish Government has written a reply to Professor Muir’s report which sets out what they are going to do next. You can read Scottish Government’s reply here.
