Because education is a right, not a privilege

A Declaration of Independence, placing Scotland’s future in Scotland’s hands

1) We are best placed in an independent Scotland to develop the values and principles on which the Scottish higher education system was founded.

2) Education as a right, not a privilege, is a founding principle of Scotland’s democratic ethos, and is best secured in an independent Scotland.

3) The excellence of Scotland’s universities will be given an enhanced international profile by a government keener to welcome students from around the world than to exclude them.

4) The completion of the powers of the Scottish Parliament will provide the best context for Scottish universities to work with the Scottish government and industry to develop Scotland’s economy for the benefit of all Scottish citizens.
