Protest outside Tory conference on academies

Issue No. 2191

Anti-academies campaigners are set to protest at a conference organised by the Tory magazine, the Spectator.

The Schools Revolution conference will outline plans to push privatisation of schools, turning them into profit-making enterprises.

The Tories want to remove schools from local authority control and increase business influence.

Their plans will give children a worse education.

Protest Thursday 4 March, 8.30am, Park Plaza Hotel, Westminster, SE1 7UT. Go to » www.antiacademies.org.uk for more information
