The Tories have declared war on state education their real aim is; to destroy local democracy, ‘shrink the state’ and then allow ‘for-profit’ schools – like ‘Charter’ Schools in the USA. But this may well be over reach by the Government. It is up to us to build the biggest alliance and make this real possibility a fact.
Please see inside some useful links to articles which I think Primary teachers will find interesting.
Cambridge Primary Review website calling for a boycott of SATs
An article written in the journal Education for Liberation concerning SPAG
An open letter published in the TES to Nicky Morgan which is getting a lot of publicity
An online petition calling on the SATs to be cancelled which now has over 47,000 signatures and is still growing

Changes to the curriculum
forcing children to jump through hoops
