Hey bankers, leave our kids alone!

ARK (Absolute Return for Kids) is a “charitable” trust supported and run by a group of investment bankers and hedge fund speculators who are seeking to become the sponsors of a number of city academies in London, including one which will be based on the current sites of Islington Green and Moreland schools and others in Lambeth and Westminster.

For £2 million ARK gets control of a school capital-funded by the state to the tune of £25-30 million but not democratically controlled in any way by the local community.

Islington and Lambeth Teachers’ Associations and Islington UNISON have called a protest outside the headquarters of ARK: 27 Queen Anne's Gate, London SW1H 9BU. Thursday 16 June 4.30-5.30pm. More: Kevin Courtney: 020 7974 8038
