THE 28 June conference called to launch the campaign to boycott the government's SATs school tests looks set to be massive. Already parents, teachers and governors from all over the country have committed themselves to attending the conference.
Former NUT president John Illingworth will address the conference along with children's writer Alan Gibbons. Most importantly, we will hear from parents, support staff and, yes, even children themselves about how tests are ruining life in schools. The conference will be more than a rally.
Everyone who attends should emerge with a clear plan about what they can do to make this campaign more effective. The conference fee is £5 for NUT members and absolutely free for anyone else. Lunch and a creche are provided.
