Campaigning for Education

posted 27 Apr 2017, 02:32 by Gerald Clark
With the announcement of a General Election, we have a key opportunity to highlight the massive problems created in Education by the current government.  Last year's KS2 Assessment debacle; The plan to increase Grammar schools and selective education; and most importantly the crisis in funding of our schools are all issues that the NUT wishes to put high on the agenda during this campaign.

We are currently finalising leaflets and have arranged the following events so far. We have decided to cancel our next General Meeting, which was scheduled for 23rd of May in order to try and bring as many teachers as possible to the Camden Cuts Demo. 

Street Stalls on Saturdays
11am -1pm, Engaging the local community in discussion about school funding cuts, venues TBC on 13th, 20th and 27th May. Please let us know if you can commit to any or all of these dates.  We will confirm which sessions and where when we know who is available.

Leafletting outside Primary schools, Wednesday mornings 8:30-9:30
3rd May Kingsgate Primary, Kilburn
17th May, Fitzjohns Primary, Hampstead
7th June, Emmanuel Primary & Beckford Primary School, West Hampstead.

Tuesday 23rd May The 'Big School Assembly' (Camden Cuts Demo), Parliament Hill Playing Fields - Rally at 5pm.
We are hoping to bring together teachers, governors, parents and students in a Central demo about cuts to Camden Schools. It would be great for school groups to assemble and march with banners to the rally through Camden, distributing leaflets.
