Weekend of action

The National Weekend of Action on 21st & 22nd April was a huge success, with thousands turning out to fight school cuts.

Thousands of parents, teachers and support staff took part in events across England to highlight the school funding crisis over a weekend of action in April.

The National Education Union and the other unions behind the School Cuts campaign, representing school leaders, teachers and support staff across the country, called on the Government to do the right thing and improve school funding urgently.

NEU joint general secretary Dr Mary Bousted, pictured above with Owen Jones and Schools Cuts campaigners, joined a stall in Pimlico, while NEU joint general secretary Kevin Courtney campaigned in Morley (pictured below).

School funding cuts are igniting concern across the country. We are with teachers, other staff and parents talking with the community - and getting great support. This crisis will deepen without Government investment schools need and that pupils, parents and communities deserve.

Kevin Courtney, joint general secretary, NEU
