The Teachers' Action, 1984-1986: Learning Lessons from History
Rieser, Richard
FORUM: for promoting 3-19 comprehensive education, v58 n2 p267-274 2016
Thirty years ago teachers in the NUT and NASUWT were involved in a protracted industrial dispute. The outcome of the dispute had huge implications for education policy in the years that followed (most obviously the introduction of the 1987 Education Bill), and has important lessons for teacher unionism today. The author offers a personal reflection on his involvement in that historic dispute, and connects the struggles of 1986 with those happening in 2016.
