The crisis in education funding is continuing to bite. We’ve already won back £1.3bn through our campaign, but 91% of schools still face Government cuts, class sizes are increasing, and teachers and support staff are being driven out of the profession.
With the weekend of action on 21 and 22 April, we aim to create a noise so loud that no one can ignore what's happening to our schools. Will you join us?

What is the weekend of action?
With a new Education Secretary, Damian Hinds and local elections looming across the country this May, it’s time to step up pressure to show our campaign won’t relent. The nation will be engaged in a national conversation about the state of our public services; we must work to make sure the school funding crisis is front and centre in the media and with politicians at this time.
We need to create a noise so loud that no one can ignore what’s happening to our schools. At the General Election 2017, the force of the school cuts campaigning led 750,000 people to switch their vote because of school funding. It’s time to get organising again to bring this issue to the top of the agenda in our communities.
That means making a visible statement with window posters, leafleting our school gates, participating in the national banner action and holding community meetings.
With these actions big and small the National Weekend of Action on 21st and 22nd of April will mean the Government can't ignore the impact of school funding cuts any longer.
See all the other ways you can get involved, from putting up a poster to organising a local meeting.
