The Islington protest

Islington teachers and parents protested at accountants Kingston Smith in London last week. One of the firm’s senior partners is Michael Snyder, chairman of the policy and resources committee of the Corporation of London which wants to co-sponsor an academy in place of Islington Green School. On 20 July at Islington town hall, the council executive is set to discuss issuing a closure notice on Islington Green School so that it can be reopened as an academy. Join the protest in Upper Street, London N1, from 6.30pm.
