SCHOOL CUTS – IT’S TIME TO STEP UP THE PRESSURE

The Chancellor had another opportunity to announce emergency funding for schools in his spring statement last week.

Instead, he chose to do nothing, leaving school communities alone to deal with the biggest funding crisis in a generation.

With a new Education Secretary, Damian Hinds, and local elections looming across the country this May, the nation will be engaged in a national conversation about the state of our public services.

We must work to make sure the school funding crisis is front and centre in the media and with politicians at this time.

It’s time to step up the pressure, that’s why we’ve produced an Action Toolkit for campaigners.

At the General Election 2017, the force of our campaigning led 750,000 people to switch their vote because of school funding. It’s time to get organising again to bring this issue to the top of the agenda in our communities.

We need to create a noise so loud that no one can ignore what’s happening to our schools.  

That means making a visible statement with window posters, leafleting our school gates, participating in the national banner action and holding community meetings.

With these actions big and small we can together ignite a scandal about school cuts in every corner of the country.

We mustn’t rest until every politician knows that there are millions of voters who are well informed and willing to use their votes and voices to fight for our children’s education.

In the toolkit you’ll find resources, order forms, signup sheets. Everything you’ll need to get organising in your community with more to come.

If you have any questions just reply to this email.

Thank you so much for all you do,

Andrew Baisley

Campaigner, School Cut
