The NEU Councillors Network is a partnership between local councillors and the National Education Union to shape the future of education. Our network is open to all councillors.
Government cuts are crippling schools and colleges, making it harder for leaders and teachers to do a good job for our students and pupils. The cuts are pushing up class sizes, workload, stress and driving good teachers from the profession.
The "funding crisis in our schools is very real". Read NEU joint secretaries letter to James Cleverly.
We need to keep the pressure on ahead of this spring's comprehensive spending review, when government will set out its funding plans for education for the next three years.
Congratulations to all who signed. This petition was created by a group of head teachers in Gateshead, and now Parliament will debate this petition on 4 March 2019. A great success for all concerned.

Watch our video on the crisis in SEND funding
According to the Department for Education’s own figures, more than 2,000 children in England with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) are awaiting provision.
Meet Yvonne. She's been in education for 33 years and she's never seen the funding so bad, particularly for children with special needs.
