Here are my choices for The Best Resources For Learning About Scotland’s Schools:

Why Scotland doesn’t have a national curriculum is from The BBC.

Scottish Schools Focus on More Than Just Tests is from The New York Times.

England vs Scotland: Competing school reform visions is from The Washington Post.

Additional suggestions are welcome.
