Scottish secretary Donald Dewar said that although he wanted to see more funding and a 'revolutionary change' for education, local authorities will not be given carte blanche to spend money.

The Scotsman (p1) reports that Mr Dewar warned that Scotland cannot sit back and rely on its reputation for educational excellence. He revealed that the government is prepared to come up with new money for schools - but only if teachers and education authorities embraced reform.

Ronnie Smith, general secretary for the Educational Institute of Scotland, said: 'What teachers and parents would want is as much change as the system can properly handle. If you are in for mega-change the implication is you need mega-resources.'
