Stand Up for Education – NUT Manifesto
Parents and teachers have a golden opportunity to use the time before the general election to pressure politicians. The NUT believes that every child and young person should be valued – that’s why we argue for action to tackle child poverty and to create a flexible and inclusive curriculum that’s accessible to every learner.

"Here is an inspiring alternative: not an education system based on fragmentation and marketisation, but one that puts the needs of children at its very heart. If politicians had any sense, they would read it and act."
