Nicola Sturgeon trumps Jim Murphy on education spending pledge
Plan is partly inspired by success of the London Challenge
FIRST Minister Nicola Sturgeon has unveiled a new plan to boost attainment levels in Scotland's most deprived schools.
The four-year scheme will be aimed at improving health and wellbeing as well as literacy and numeracy in disadvantaged communities across Scotland.
The First Minister's proposals will be backed by a new Attainment Scotland fund which will provide PS100m of investment over four years.
