Continuing its Face Up to Child Poverty campaign, the Educational Institute of Scotland (EIS), Scotland’s largest teaching union, is publicly reaffirming its commitment to highlighting the impact of poverty on education during Challenge Poverty Week this week.
Child poverty week reminds us that more needs to be done to help the most vulnerable in our community.
Poverty is an issue for many people in Scotland, in particular young people. Back in 2015 the Scottish Youth Parliament, which I actively support, ran a campaign on child poverty called ‘See it, change it’. More information about their campaign can be found here.
