Schools urgently need more funding

91% of schools are still facing real-terms cuts

Because of shortfalls in funding 91% of schools are still facing real-terms cuts despite Government announcements about more money going into the system.

That means:

  • less for our children and young people
  • bigger classes
  • fewer teachers and staff
  • a reduced curriculum
  • parents plugging the gaps.

On Tuesday 24 October the National Education Union held a mass lobby of Parliament to protest against education funding cuts. 

Now the lobby and rally are over, what can I do?

Twitter: Print out this Twitter card, add your own message (see the School Cuts website for details of the cuts faced by your school / area) and tweet a picture of you holding the card @NEUnion - don't forget to add #SchoolCuts

Meet your MP: Arrange to see your MP at a local surgery to discuss school funding. Ask other teachers and parents to contact their MP too.
