Fears have been raised that the SNP is allowing nationalism to seep into the Scottish education system.

Neil McLennan, a senior lecturer at Aberdeen University and one of Scotland’s most respected educators, said pupils were now being taught history through a “parochial lens” and the government was ignoring subjects and events that could “do down Scotland”.

In a scathing review on the state of the curriculum in Scotland, Mr McLennan also said the idea Scotland traditionally had a world-leading education system presented a “real risk of Scottish exceptionalism,” and was “typical of the current Caledonian zeitgeist”.

And he also said Scotland was “rhetoric rich and implementation poor” on education and spoke of “bulls*** bingo” when it came to slogans.
