Kids on strike

On Tuesday 3 May thousands of parents kept their kids off school for the day in protest at Year 2 National Curriculum Tests (SATs).

Hundreds of people (most recent estimates are 1000!) attended a lively and colourful rally in Brighton’s Preston Park where I spent the morning. I wrote a report about the ‘kids strike’ for Red Pepper’s website and you can see some more photos from Brighton’s rally here on Flickr.
