Ikids in playground LIn the run up to the general election, there will be a big debate around education and what it should look like in this country.

The National Union of Teachers’ has launched a fantastic manifesto for education that can be downloaded here.
We would like to follow this example with a manifesto that looks in detail at the changes we would like to see made to early years and primary education.

We are therefor inviting as many people as possible to attend our “creating a manifesto for early years and primary education” meeting on Saturday 8th November, 11am – 2pm at SOAS, central London (room number tbc). Kevin Courtney, Deputy General Secretary of the NUT will be attending this meeting to talk about how the NUT created their manifesto.

At this event, we will also discuss how we can move towards a boycott of “baseline” tests for four year olds.
