Save Birmingham Schools - No to forced academies
Many of Birmingham's Primary schools are under threat of privatisation. The Local Authority is pushing schools to move to academy status before they are "forced" by Michael Gove, Secretary of State for Education. We the undersigned support our local schools and believe that this is not the answer to school improvement. We call upon the Local Council to support our schools staying within the local family of schools and to help them fight against the plans to hand them over to private sponsors and away from the communities they serve.
