Parents and teachers will be meeting at their school and then coming to a rally in the park - spot prizes for good placards - schools bands welcome
We are told there is record spending on schools, yet head teachers across the country are expecting large budget cuts with some already having to cut staff post, subjects and support.
So who is right and what do the parties say about the other issues raised by schools and students, such as increased class sizes, the effect of SATs, the new GCSEs and much more?
Join parents, staff and local residents in asking: “How will the political parties help our schools?”
