[S1M-2697] Decision Time — 7 Feb 2002 at 17:03

This looks like the vote on S1M-2697

The description in the bulletin on 2002-02-06 is:

*S1M-2697 Michael Russell: Class Sizes and Pupil Attainment—That the Parliament notes increasing research that indicates considerable short-, medium- and long-term benefits from reducing early primary class sizes, preferably to 18 or below, and the particular impact that such reductions have on children living in poverty; further notes the performance indicators 2000-01 report by the Accounts Commission published on 24 January 2002, which shows that the Scottish Executive has not yet achieved its own class size targets, and therefore calls on all parties in the Parliament to support the SNP’s radical initiatives on this matter as an important step in not only assisting individual educational attainment and individual lifetime achievement, but also bringing collective economic benefit for Scotland as a whole.

The description in the bulletin on 2002-02-07 is:
