Unelected roles

It is arrogant for Peter King (Letters, 2 September) to suggest that Church of Scotland ministers should have unelected seats on education committees given that they represent barely a quarter of all Scots but he is right to say that “not just politicians” should be involved. Education committees have parent representatives and teacher representatives too: people whose insights and experience are relevant to education!
