What we each do as individuals to challenge the current education system and bring about change?
Here’s a start:
- Get informed about alternatives. Check out our alternatives pages at: https://rescueourschools.co.uk/alternatives/
- If you like what you have read, demand it. One of the single most powerful things we can each do is write to our MP and ask for change. We know that MPs take their mailbag very seriously, so get scribbling. Feel free to customise your letter. This is just a guide, written from the point of view of a local parent. You can find out who your MP is here: https://www.theyworkforyou.com/mp/
