co-sponsored by Croydon National Union of Teachers

and Croydon TUC’s Croydon Assembly

Speakers include:

Philipa Harvey, NUT national officer

Ted Knight, Chair, Croydon Assembly

Nick Toms, parent-governor

The Tories’ funding cuts and academy proposals will damage the education system. Instead, the government should be dealing with

– the crisis in teacher recruitment

– the huge shortfall in the number of school places

– the chaos and confusion around testing.

Entry is free and refreshments are available.

Reserve your place through Eventbrite
