Shadow S of S for Education to hear experiences and questions from Devon educators on Wednesday

Wednesday 17th March 7.00-8.30pm

As Children head back into the Classroom Devon Education stakeholders to Question Shadow Education Secretary 

On Wednesday 17th March, educators across Devon will have the chance to share their experiences and questions with Shadow Secretary of State for Education Kate Green MP on the quality of education in Devon.

This follows on from a successful listening event at the end of February which brought together parents, teachers and students to discuss topics such as academisation of schools, exams and the effect of COVID on students and teachers. 

Current Labour Councillors were at hand to answer questions which arose, as well as prospective candidates in the May 2021 elections. 

Cllr Su Aves from Devon County Council Children’s Scrutiny Committee who attended February’s event commented, “it is an unjust reality that students in Devon receive less funding per pupil than the national average and the pandemic has exacerbated the lack of resources in our schools and the achievement gap between students.” 

“As children went back into the classroom last week, this event with the Shadow Secretary will be a welcome opportunity for educators to discuss the state of education in Devon. We extend the invitation to any members of the public interested in working to make education better in Devon.” 

Members of the public can register for this free event here: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/devon-education-spotlight-with-kate-green-shadow-education-secretary-tickets-141603368487
