NUT: David Cameron needs to acquaint himself with the National Curriculum
Friday, 10 August 2012
Commenting on the latest remarks by David Cameron about school sport, Christine Blower, General Secretary of the National Union of Teachers, the largest teachers’ union, said:
"It ill behoves the Prime Minister to dismiss money as an issue in school sport. Cutting School Sports Partnerships was frankly an act of vandalism and left many schools without the additional support for sport they had found so helpful.
"If the Prime Minister were to acquaint himself more thoroughly with the National Curriculum and with practice in schools he would be congratulating state school teachers on the great job they are doing in competitive sport as well as in all forms of activity which encourage fitness."
