Commenting, Colin Beattie MSP said:
“This latest funding underlines the SNP Scottish government’s commitment to ensuring every child receives a world class education and will create the modern and creative new learning spaces we need to achieve this.
“The SNP already has a strong record of delivery on schools - since 2007, 520 schools across Scotland have been built or refurbished.
“But we know that we need to do more to ensure every child has an equal chance to succeed – that’s why the First Minister has made closing the educational attainment gap a priority. If re-elected in 2016, the SNP will continue to build on our strong record on education and will deliver in the face of harsh Westminster cuts.”
