The Scottish government has been urged to tackle inequality following a parliamentary report into science, technology, engineering and maths (Stem) education. The publication, made available today from the Scottish Parliament’s Education and Skills Committee, which has been investigating Stem in early education, said more needed to be done to reduce the effects of gender and financial inequality on the standard of learning across the country. The committee's convener, SNP MSP Clare Adamson, has called on the Scottish government “to do more” to study how effective measures to promote Stem in schools have been.
