The past year has been a very challenging one for everyone but what it has shown is that we need our union now more than ever. The government handling of the crisis has been a disaster and the education sector needs a vision for the future and a a strategy to deliver it.
We need a properly funded, cradle to grave education system with teaching professionals at the heart of it.
What the NEU needs to deliver this is unity. Education workers together for change. Gawain recognises this and this is why I am happy to endorse his campaign.
