NASUWT: Public asset stripping is par for the course with this government

Responding to reports that since coming into office, the Coalition Government has sold off over twenty school playing fields, Chris Keates, General Secretary of the NASUWT, the largest teachers’ union, said:

"It comes as no surprise that another valuable public asset is being sold off by this Government.

"Asset stripping is taking place everyday as the Government hands over valuable public land and buildings to the privateers who want to run academies and other parts of public services.

"It was the last Conservative Government that began selling off school playing fields.  This is just history repeating itself with another Government that knows the price of everything and the value of nothing."
