Argyll Rural Schools Network requests that council candidates consider the statement below and indicate whether they are happy to support it. We will be publicising the results among our members and in the media. It may be useful for you to read our mission statement (below) before you consider the statement.
“I support the call by ARSN for the opening of dialogue between Argyll and Bute Council, ARSN, councillors and other appropriate bodies with a view to drawing up a new vision of rural education in Argyll & Bute. I believe there should be a presumption against rural school closure and that the Council should adopt such a presumption as a foundation policy for education in the area.”
Responses can be sent by return to our email address or by post to ARSN.
