With all local authorities across Scotland reluctantly accepting the funding deal proposed by the Scottish Government, Renfrewshire discuss the impact of the cuts, and progress already achieved in spite of them. Elsewhere, our policy team review the Education (Scotland) Bill, and Children in Scotland’s role in securing an important amendment.
