Standing up for Education: Organising at the Local Level
Unterrainer, Tom
FORUM: for promoting 3-19 comprehensive education, v56 n2 p293-298 2014
This article describes how one local teachers' union branch has developed an active and imaginative campaign as it has challenged both national education policy and also the very specific attacks on schools in the community. By connecting local and national issues, and by linking struggles on pay and pensions to wider questions of policy, the local union has been able to engage both teachers and parents in broad campaigns that "stand up for education".
