Mr Smith said: “In particular, the survey highlights that the engagement of teachers with CfE is highly variable across the country.
“While this is improving, there remains a substantial minority of teachers and lecturers who do not feel fully engaged with CfE.
“Given the timetable for implementation, this is an issue of real concern and urgency for local authorities and the Scottish Government to address.”
Other concerns raised by Mr Smith included a lack of time for staff to work on CfE development and a “stark lack of funding to support the most ambitious programme of curricular change in a generation”.
No such qualms from the various Northern Ireland teaching unions who have swallowed CCEA’s curricular changes whole.
