How many people are HE in Scotland?


The stats kept by councils are unreliable. I have a lot of FOI responses (kindly shared by the journalist who submitted the requests) with numbers that suggest an increase, but the stated stats are pretty low in all cases as they only include children withdrawn from school.

It's a bit like trying to establish an accurate number of vegetarians or vegans - nobody really knows and there is no need to know as the care/education of children is a parental responsibility.
