The Anti Academies Alliance involves parents, teachers, school governors, trade unionists, councillors and MPs. We believe that the government’s Academies programme is privatising our schools.
The Anti Academies Alliance is producing a newspaper.
It will be printed at the beginning of September and we will have it at the TUC Congress to give to delegates. We hope it will be used widely by campaigns and in the Trade Unions and, we believe, will be ideal for sending to councillors and school governors.
The newspaper will have contributions from Ken Purchase MP, Fiona Millar, Francis Beckett, Melissa Benn, Peter Mortimore.
There are articles on ‘what do parents really want?’, ULT, International Privatisation, Attainment, Exclusions.
Education Trade Union leaders Chris Keates (NASUWT), Christine Blower (NUT), Christina McAnea (UNISON), Sally Hunt (UCU), Andy Ballard (ATL) are contributing articles.
Education campaigns SEA, CASE and Comprehensive Futures have contributed articles.
Of course there are reports from campaigns around the country, where we have stopped the Academies and where campaigners are organising to stop them.
