Parents may lose power to headteachers and local authorities under plans to change the way they are represented, it has been warned.Although the plan is supposedly designed "to encourage more parents to become involved", the Scottish Consumer Council smells a rat. Good for them. But having noticed the problem the SCC come up with a totally wrong solution:
the creation of a professionally-run organisation which speaks for parents.The only way forward for consumers of any product is to become customers instead of supplicants. That necessitates the privatisation of education, which would eliminate the need for pointless committees or forums.
