Also I think in education it will be disastrous especially in rural places, Highlands and the Islands. Lots of schools, village halls etc are co funded by the Scottish Govt and EU working together.


The EU does not fund (or co-fund) Scottish Schools.

Ongoing Local Authority Education and Schools funding is done through Local Authorities with some additional support from Holyrood. Yer Cooncil Tax is a part of Edyoucashun Funding.

The School Building Programme was drawn up in 2010 and operates through the Scottish Futures Trust (replacing the PFI catastrophe) and is being funded via a mixture of capital grant and revenue support through an NPD investment pipeline. The Scottish Government's School Building Programme is nothing to do with the EU.

To suggest that Brexit will impact Scottish schools funding in rural areas is a baseless attempt at scaremongering.
