Education meeting , this Friday

1 09 2014

As discussed in the previous post, there is a public meeting on education on Friday 5th September 2014 featuring:

  • Tristram Hunt (MP for Stoke-on-Trent Central and Shadow Secretary of State for Education) and
  • Christine Blower (National Union of Teachers, General Secretary). 

The meeting will be chaired by Jason Hill, President of the North Staffs Trades Council. This has been jointly organised by the North Staffs Trades Council (NSTUC) and North Staffs Pensioners’ Convention.

We originally planned three speakers but will be keeping to two to ensure that there is loads of time for the speakers to answer questions from members of the audience, so please bring yours.
