Help us fight new Academies in Southwark

Submitted by Matthew on 29 July, 2010 - 2:16 Author: Florence Mensah

The two Southwark secondary schools that are not yet Academies are set to become guinea-pig Gove academies. Workers and parents need your help.

Trade union organisers within one of these schools have been subject to unnecessary and draconian persecution for trying to build up a genuine response from staff to this crazily rushed and ill-considered legislation.

They want to intimidate workers from speaking out against conversion to new-style Academy status.

Staff should not be intimidated for opposing Gove, defending our jobs and fighting to maintain community-based comprehensive education. The intimidation should not be allowed divide and conquer staff and parent opinion.

Please support us in our fight!

• Southwark anti-Academy campaign public meetings: St Thomas More Hall, 116a Lordship Lane, East Dulwich SE22 8HD, 7.30pm, Wednesday 8 and 15 September.

• Also meeting every Wednesday evening in August, Magdala pub, 211 Lordship Lane.
