Stand Up for Education – statement of support from education researchers

“As lecturers, researchers 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”.
