This is the statement we asked colleagues to sign up to, to indicate their support for the SUFE manifesto:
As lecturers and professors of Education, we wish to express our support for Stand Up For Education: a manifesto for our children’s education. We urge policy makers to recognise the need for a wider vision of learning and education, which is no longer distorted and undermined by bureaucratic systems of surveillance and artificial target-setting. We call for immediate steps to end the blight of child poverty along with funding for high quality early years education and the restoration of financial support for post-16 students to stay in education. We agree that the future development of high quality comprehensive education for all depends on a well qualified teaching profession and the principle of local democratic governance.
The manifesto can be read at https://www.teachers.org.uk/files/manifesto-16pp-a5–9623-_0.pdf
We now need to maximise support. Please forward it to your colleagues and ask them to add their support.
