Standing up for Education: Building a National Campaign
Courtney, Kevin; Little, Gawain
FORUM: for promoting 3-19 comprehensive education, v56 n2 p299-327 2014
Over the past four years, the UK coalition government has made significant progress in transforming the state education system. This transformation has its roots in a longer-term restructuring of education. This article argues that, in order to counter this attack, we need to build a movement around an alternative vision of education. Further, it argues that the Stand Up for Education campaign, through posing five key demands and a three-strand strategy to campaign for them, provides an opportunity to outline an alternative and build such a movement.
