And with another twist in the turning doors of the schools closure muddle, Comhairle nan Eilean Siar has decided to close Carloway and Seilebost primaries as well as the secondary section of Shawbost, but to keep open the secondary section of Lionel school in Ness. The closures are to take effect as of June 2013. If memory serves, the Scottish Government is still minded to lodge an appeal against the legal ruling that the Comhairle could close all four schools. I don’t think we’re any the wiser tonight, because we still do not know where we stand. Will those three schools actually close, or not?
Both the Scottish Government and the local council should hang their heads in shame over this disgraceful mess.
