ActivityThe Education (Scotland) Act of 1918 (8 George V cap 48) established education authorities in every county to administer education on a county-wide basis. School boards were abolished and replaced with school management committees for the management of individual schools or groups of schools. The functions of the education authority were transferred to county councils and to the four councils of cities (Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh and Glasgow) under the terms of the Local Authority (Scotland) Act 1929 (19 & 20 Geo.V cap 25). School management committees were replaced with education subcommittees or local education subcommittees by the Local Government (Scotland) Act, 1947 (10 & 11 Geo. V, cap 43). The Local Government (Scotland) Act 1973 (cap 65) transferred the duties of county councils for education to regional councils in 1975.
