A new report from the Accounts Commission warns that attempts by councils to close half-empty schools are in danger of being delayed or frustrated by parents staging opt-out ballots, reports The Scotsman (p6).

The report follows a commission study last year which recommenced that 118 schools should be closed in Scotland.

Meanwhile teacher unions have hit out as the Glasgow school closure plans begin to look much bigger than expected, the paper reports (p6).

The city council's budget crisis could add to existing closure plans set in train by Strathclyde RC. The Scotsman claims as many as 18 schools could be shut down.
