Labour called for an overhaul of how school leavers’ progress and the success of the education system is assessed, pointing out Nicola Sturgeon’s party count the controversial contracts as a “positive destination” for young people.
The statistics showed that in 2015-16, 91.4 per cent of school leavers went on to a “positive destination”, such as university, college, training or work, down from 92 per cent in 2014-15.
