The Conservatives are trying to force the academisation of all our schools. This is a top down re-organisation, costing over £1 billion – without a shred of evidence that academies improve standards – that teachers, governors and parents do not want.
At a time when the education budget is being cut for the first time in twenty years, Labour wants money spent on driving up standards.
This weekend, Labour will be campaigning to stop academisation and for investment in education. So, if you believe education matters, if you believe all our children matter, if you believe that every child has a right to go to a local school and do their best and succeed – join us, Labour, in opposing academies.
