A key strand of our Stand up for Education campaign is communicating to politicians the concerns that teachers have.
Over 150 MPs were lobbied in Westminster at the NUT lobby of Parliament on 10 June. We know that many more MPs are being lobbied in their constituencies.
This pressure on politicians is beginning to deliver results. Most recently we received this excellent report from Angela Argenzio - an NUT member in Sheffield - of her meeting with her local MP the Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg. Within days of the meeting, Nick Clegg was telling the Times Educational Supplement that he wanted to bring an end to the Government’s “acrimonious” relationship with teachers and tackle the rising workload faced by the profession.
