Campaigners in the Labour Party were campaigning across North Norfolk today to fight Theresa May’s controversial plans for more grammar schools.
Activists from North Norfolk Labour Party were out in North Walsham taking part in a day of action as part of Labour’s “education not segregation” campaign.
Stephen Burke, chair of North Norfolk Labour Party, was speaking to residents and shoppers in North Walsham. He explained: “We are opposing Theresa May’s decision to the lift the ban on grammar schools, which was put in place by the last Labour government.
Labour’s plan offers education for all, while the government’s plans are all about segregation in education.
Their record in government so far has seen classes swell to the biggest in Europe, teachers in their masses leaving the profession, and scandal at their unaccountable academics.We need investment in our children and schools. A return to selective education won’t fix things.”
Broadland Labour Party campaigners were also out in Fakenham and Aylsham in North Norfolk.
North Norfolk Labour Party will be holding more campaigning events over the coming weeks including a return to North Walsham on Thursday from 9am.
