Value for money?

A letter from Tom Miers published in The Herald on 6th December

Sir,
 
over the last decade spending per pupil in our state schools has doubled. At the same time exam pass rates have fallen and Scotland’s position in a number of international league tables has declined, including the OECD’s PISA survey as you reported yesterday.
 
Where has all the money gone?
