Unions fight new class cuts with protests at schools across Sussex
2:20pm Friday 19th July 2013 in News
Unions are mounting a campaign against axing classroom assistants in schools.
GMB representatives have been collecting signatures outside schools across Sussex for a petition protesting against Government plans to scrap 230,000 classroom assistants to save money.
Unions have been pitched outside schools including Davigdor Infant School in Hove and Hastings Schools Castledown and Elphinstone.
Rachel Verdin, GMB organiser, said: “Teaching assistants give valuable extra support in the classroom particularly with children with additional needs.
“Without this one-to-one support let’s be clear children’s education will suffer. This is a cut too far and Gove must be told.”
