When the London Fed, ( London Federration of Green Parties). agreed last night to consultation with community and campaign groups regarding revision of our education policy I was asked to circulate the wording of the placard I displayed. The placard had been applauded by striking teachers on the London march
*NO* to privatisation, academies, free schools, phonics test and SATs
*YES* to creative teaching in democratically accountable LA schools
*TOO MUCH, TOO SOON!*/(reference to formal curriculum for young children starting to soon)
*68-TOO LATE!* (/reference to pension reform proposal requiring teachers to work until the age of 68)/ /
If anyone would like to join in drafting amendments to our education policy to take into account the changes brought about by Michael Gove please email me on firstname.lastname@example.org
