[S2M-5386] Decision Time — 11 Jan 2007 at 17:00

This looks like the vote on S2M-5386

The description in the bulletin on 2007-01-10 is:

*S2M-5386 Murdo Fraser: Education with specific reference to Skills Academies—That the Parliament believes that our education system should provide children with opportunities to flourish along the lines of their own particular aptitudes and inclinations; notes that for many children over the age of 14 this could predominantly involve activity in a practical or vocational sphere, rather than in a traditional academic one, and welcomes the proposal to establish skills academies, be they stand-alone or attached to schools or colleges, depending on what is most appropriate for a local area, as centres of excellence to extend opportunities to access vocational education to students from the age of 14.
