Why are we running this campaign?
Schools North East has been campaigning against funding inequalities on behalf of North East schools for several years. School leaders have asked the charity to take the campaign work beyond the existing focus on inequity within the system and focus on the broader issue of real terms cuts in funding.
The idea for this campaign is a simple one: we need to take the Government to task on why our country’s schools are so underfunded. We want to unite with schools, businesses, supporters, partners and parents to launch a truly effective campaign to mobilise voters in support of education.
