Really enjoyed the hustings at Marling School.
The students ran a question time style event & made sure we all kept to a strict timetable.
Thank you to the politics team & teachers for a great event
I was disappointed to hear the Green & Labour candidates tell a brilliant set of Grammar school students & teachers at Marling yesterday that they don’t agree with Grammar schools! On my watch - in Stroud, the Valleys & Vale we will have great state schools, grammar schools, academies, free schools & private schools.
I believe in parents & students having as many choices as possible for education throughout life.
An ideological approach to education- often from people who were educated privately /in grammars or their own children were - is not thinking of the best interest of the child & families.
