PASSMORES Academy headteacher and Harlow MP Robert Halfon clashed on breakfast television over education cuts in the town.

They appeared on ITV’s Good Morning Britain ahead of a major demonstration at Westminster today (Tuesday).

The Harlow MP was there in his capacity as the chair of the education elect committee. Mr Halfon detailed a number of points particularly that real spending had increased in schools by 4.5%

Mr Goddard fired back that the number of students had increased as well as detailing the additional costs imposed upon schools.

He also told GMB that Passmores Academy had made ten redundancies last year, including posts such as English Additional Language (EAL) posts.

Mr Goddard is set to join a number of Harlow teachers and parents at Westminster.

EAL,sounds like a department store. When I was younger, if I wanted to learn something that had taken my interest, I would go to an evening class and pay for the privilege of being taught. These ultra soft lefties will do anything to try and con the public that the nation's ills are the fault of the Tory voters, hogwash! So twisted are to-days educators, that at Churchgate Infants school, one of these so called teachers has a vote labour poster on one of her car windows for all the kiddies to see. If these loonys got back to teaching and kept their noses out of politics what a happy nation we would have.
