Teachers across the city have condemned what they call a 3% cut to their budgets.
As well as seeing a restructure to how schools are run, the EIS union said the reduction in funding would lead to a “marked detrimental impact on the learning and teaching of young people, especially the most vulnerable”.
The Scottish Secondary Teacher’s Association said they were “dismayed” with the severity of the SNP budget, which would do “nothing” to close the attainment gap in Dundee.
EIS rep David Baxter warned cuts would harm education in city schools.
In a letter to members, EIS said: “The cut in Devolved School Management budgets is a step too far, when schools and the young people they serve have already borne the brunt of these austerity measures.
“We believe such dramatic cuts would have a marked detrimental impact on the learning and teaching of young people.
“We strongly question the move to faculty-based management systems.
“In our view, not only is the timing of such a proposal ill judged – there is no educational rationale for faculty management structures.”
