A clear choice for the electorate

Commenting following the speech today by Ed Miliband, Leader of the Labour Party, Chris Keates, General Secretary of the NASUWT the largest teachers’ union in the UK, said:

“In the last two weeks we have  heard from the leaders of the two major political parties  on their plans for education post the General Election.

“In contrast to what the Prime Minister said last week, Ed Miliband’s remarks this morning will have strong resonance with many teachers and school leaders.

“Last week David Cameron promised ‘in Treasury speak flat cash per pupil’ which he was later forced admit publicly would be a further real-terms cut.

“Today Ed Miliband promised a rising education budget protected in real terms every year.

“Any government that is committed to high quality public education must recognise that investment in education has to be the key priority.

“On this issue alone there is a stark choice for the electorate in May.”
