Welcome to the Socialist Party in Education

This site has been created to provide information and resources for trade unionists and school staff, parents and students, and all who want to defend – and improve – young people’s education.

As well as the most recent articles below, the menu above gives access to more posts, listed in a range of categories. Our latest bulletin is also highlighted below, along with our archive of previous bulletins. Please download and share with your colleagues.

Socialist Party in Education brings together members of the Socialist Party working in schools and colleges in England and Wales. We help lead struggles as workplace reps and elected local union officers, particularly in the NEU but also in UNISON and other school unions.

The Socialist Party fights for socialism – a democratic society run for the needs of all and not the profits of a few. As educators, we fight for a fully resourced, democratically run, genuinely comprehensive socialist education that meets the needs of all learners.

If you want to find out how to join us, or to ask anything about the posts on this site, please contact us using the form at the bottom of the page.
