Prejudice agin Scots

Guid airticle frae Matthew Fitt in the National.

prejudice

And how come sae mony bairns fae impoverished Scots-speakin communities dinnae hae enough confidence? The Scottish Government is pouin its hair oot the noo tryin tae work it oot.

Weel, tell a wean at crucial stages o his or her development their mither tongue is slang, worthless and nae guid. That’d dae it.

Reinforce that by ainly teachin a bairn’s first language wance a year and dinnae be shocked when, in an English-speakin education environment, weans fae Scots-speakin backgroonds hae lower attainment than weans fae English-speakin backgroonds.
