The Scottish government has been accused of communicating "mixed messages" over reopening schools in August, following Nicola Sturgeon's daily coronavirus briefing.
Jamie Greene, the Scottish Conservatives' education spokesman, said Nicola Sturgeon appeared to contradict some of the statements made by her education secretary, John Swinney.
“We are now several months into this crisis and that’s more than enough time for the SNP to have come up with a nationwide plan to maximise in-class schooling.
“Instead, all we’re seeing is more confusion, mixed messaging, and a chronic lack of leadership.
"Parents and teachers won’t know who to listen to – the First Minister or the education secretary – as their stories are increasingly different."
