Gaelic Education

This week the Scottish Executive Education Department published "The Report of the Gaelic Medium Teachers Action Group". The Group made recommendations to improve the recruitment and supply of teachers who can teach in the language, to expand provision of education in Gaelic medium generally, and particularly into secondary schooling.

A news release from SEED, titled 'Bid to boost Gaelic teacher numbers', says that implementation of the recommendations will increase the numbers entering GME teaching and make it a more attractive career with improved promotion prospects, etc.

This is good for Gaelic. But already teachers are saying 'what about the other subject areas where there are shortages? Why can't we have financial incentives to attract extra teachers too?'..
