Thousands of teachers, parents, students and trade unionists marched through London on Wednesday, demanding the Tories drop their forced academy plan.
Teachers are angry at forced academies and plans to remove parent governors and qualified teachers from schools.
Kevin Courtney (front, left) is deputy general secretary of the NUT. He told Socialist Worker, "There's been a huge upsurge of anger and it's very broad.
Many teachers say they want an upsurge of demos and public meetings over this issue. And united strikes by all teacher and support staff unions.
The NUT is set to discuss its response to the academy plan at its annual conference this weekend.
The plan would mean a huge shift of resources to private firms and chains - and would mean a worse education for children.
Parents only noticed before if their child's school was threatened. Now it's every school - and there's potential to get a lot more people involved
Now the mood on the demonstration needs to be turned into action
