What if we asked 100 surgeons, 100 firefighters, 100 hairdressers, 100 carers for their views on next government?
That’s when it occurred to me that I could probably find 100 teachers to sign a letter.
On its own it will have no impact but what if it inspired other groups to write their own letters? Wouldn’t it at least challenge the notion that only our business leaders voices matter?
Please read letter below and leave your name as a comment if you want to sign it.
I’m not a member of any political party. I’d like to be a Labour Party member but am unable to agree with their more reactionary policies. I disagree with many of their educational policies but I know that nothing can be as bad as another Tory government with possibly UKIP support.
This may well be a waste of time but I’m sick of this general election already. I think it is about time we hear from ordinary people.
In the unlikely event I get 100 sig I will do my best to get letter sent out today.
We are deeply concerned that a Conservative government will damage our educational system. Like the business leaders who wrote to you yesterday we would like to use your pages to urge your readers to vote accordingly and we look forward to front page coverage of our issues tomorrow.
