David Raffe's comments in TESS on LSE's report
David Raffe's comments were quoted by TESS (9th August, 2013) in response to some suggestions made in the report "Education in a Devolved Scotland: A Quantitative Analysis - Report to the ESRC, March 2013" (Special Paper No. 30). Raffe noted that factors such as the class system, peer pressure, the way people perceive opportunities were more important than money in attributing inequalities to education. He added that "Curriculum for Excellence was more likely to influence educational outcomes in Scotland than independence."
