Southwark teach-in

Submitted by Matthew on 19 January, 2011 - 12:48

On Monday 17 January adult education students organised a teach-in at the Thomas Calton Centre in Peckham.

They were protesting at a steep rise in fees by Southwark Adult Education. Students now have to pay up to £165 a term for three hours a week. Concession fees have also been cut.

The fee rise is the result of a change in the way the local Labour-run council is interpreting the rules which govern central government funding.

Students say the fee rises will make the courses unsustainable. Local people will not be able to afford and an already run down service will be further cut.
