A letter sent to teachers explaining their pay offer has been condemned by Scotland's largest teaching union.
The EIS described the communication from the Scottish government and council body Cosla as "misleading" and "duplicitous".
But ministers insist that the letter accurately explains its offer.
Members of the EIS are currently being balloted on whether to accept the government's pay offer, which is worth at least 3%.
The government and councils insist that most teachers would actually get a 5% pay increase.
