Equality and diversity on the agenda as MP visits local school

MP for East Dunbartonshire Jo Swinson this morning paid a visit to Milngavie Primary School to speak to pupils who had been doing work recently on equality and diversity.

Commenting, Jo said:

“It was great to take part in this morning’s assembly, and to talk to pupils who have been learning about equality and diversity.

“We chatted about everything from equal pay for men and women and the gender pay gap, to how to deal with nerves when speaking in public. I was impressed by the pupils' knowledge and questions.

“Teaching our children about equality and diversity, so that everyone is treated with respect, should form a key part of their education, and I was delighted to see that teachers at Milngavie Primary are doing an excellent job of engaging the pupils here.”
