This chapter considers the extent to which secondary school education in Scotland can be considered as distinct from the rest of the UK. The chapter outlines the key characteristics of Scottish education, highlighting the important role that the Scottish 'myth' plays in shaping the system and the way that educational actors perceive the system to be. Secondary schools have recently been subjected to enormous reform. The nature of this reform and its implications for the future of the teaching profession are discussed.
