Yesterday afternoon, the public consultation document for the change to two-tier education was released in the public domain. Click here to read.
The consultation provides for 6 public meetings where Chris Hilliard, Brian Glover and John Goldsmith will present the case for changing to two tier.
Save Middle Schools demands the right to share the platform at these consultation meetings and to present the alternative view to ensure that this is a fair and even-handed debate.
Furthermore we call for the final decision to be made by local referendum before the end of July as then the mayor and his unelected officers will discover what the taxpayers and voters of Bedford Borough really think of this issue.
Two of the basic tenets of democracy are Freedom of Speech and the Right to be Heard.
Support us by attending these meetings, writing letters to firstname.lastname@example.org, and signing our online petition.
