UCU will be holding a major conference on the defence of public education in London on Saturday 10 March 2012.
Its aim is to bring together unions, students and organisations with an interest in defending our education system from cuts, privatisation and the institutionalisation of social inequality.
The conference will include speakers on the break-up of the school system, the attacks on further, adult, prison and ESOL education at a time of rising unemployment, and on the abject poverty of the government’s vision for the future of higher education.
There will be an opportunity for delegates to discuss how we can most effectively unite around a principled defence of our education system.
Attendance at the conference will be free for all UCU members.
