Around 120 striking teachers marched through the city centre in Bradford today as part of their national strike action. Cries rang out from the marchers of ‘Gove Must Go’ and ‘Defend education’ echoing the anger of NUT members at the ongoing attacks.
One teacher told me ‘We can’t not strike. Our pay is being squeezed whilst our workload continues to increase. We’re not just striking for ourselves but for the future of our profession’.
