Five challenges for the new Government
The Conservatives did not win the election on education: their promises on school funding were insufficient, their plans to bring back no-notice Ofsted inspections left teachers and TAs dismayed and they ignored the severe and escalating crisis of child poverty.
We the undersigned support these five challenges which are among the issues the Government urgently must address:
- End school cuts and invest in education
- End child poverty
- Replace Ofsted with a fair way of evaluating schools
- End high-stakes primary testing
- Address the teacher retention and recruitment crisis
