The meeting will include a showing of the film about the Downhill campaign ‘Academies and Lies’ which explores the story of a primary school forced to be an Academy and run by Harris! A company lead by a carpet salesman, multi-millionaire and Tory party donor. Parents and staff put up a valiant fight and the film is an inspiration to all those campaigning against privatisation. The fight included strikes by teachers and support staff across the unions and a huge community and parent campaign.
There will also be representatives at the AGM from two campaigns Roke and Gladstone Park currently facing forced academisation.
Come and join the fight to save state education from Gove’s privatisation plans.
