The Wesley Euston Hotel & Conference Venue, 81-103 Euston Street, London, NW1 2EZ
Resistance against academisation has never gone away, but recent months have seen a sharp increase across the country in the number of strikes and campaigns against academisation and a renewed mood to bring all schools that have converted back under local democratic control.
With the idea of a National Education Service under a future Labour government, the issue of academisation must take centre stage.
We face an entrenched ‘education ruling class’ who have power and control over vast swathes of the education system. It will take a huge social movement of staff, parents and students to shift them.
This event, with speakers and workshops, will focus on why we must resist academisation and how we do that. There will be speakers from campaigns against academisation and from leading figures in education and the opportunity, through workshops, to share ideas and strategies.
