COSLA today called on the Educational Institute of Scotland to remove their ideological straightjacket and be a bit more concerned about the learning environment rather than funding mechanisms.
COSLA's education spokesperson Rev Ewan Aitken said: 'What matters here is what delivers for the children and what works on the ground.
'We would be very interested in hearing the EIS views on how councils could have secured the£2bn of investment we have seen in the school estate. An investment not only for the education service in Scotland but for the wider communities as a whole.
'This investment has led to new schools springing up across Scotland. Schools which are fit for the 21st century and provide our children with the best possible learning environment and teachers with excellent working conditions.
'The EIS should be celebrating success rather than carping and I would encourage them to get out of their ideological straightjacket.'
