SSBA currently represents over 75% of schools in Scotland, with a parent and teacher membership of almost 20,000. SSBA brings together educationalists, parents, pupils, governments at both local and national level as well as members of local communities to discuss and develop best practice which in turn leads to improved standards in schools. SSBA provides School Board training for parents and teachers throughout Scotland. [ read more ]
