Education on Trial with our F.A.B. speed debating!

Education is on Trial in the heart of London at ULU

The event is held in the wake of the cuts announced in the Comprehensive Spending Review and ahead of the NUS/UCU national demonstration on 10th November against fees and education cuts.

Comedians, artists, musicians, poets, academics and activists will discuss schools, testing, funding education, what education is for and much more around a central ‘pub table’ where audience members are encouraged to join in the debate.

Get your creative energies going in our banner making corner with University of Westminster’s Sky Yarlett. We have the materials needed, just bring some slogans.

The bi-monthly “on trial” events are organised by a rag-tag of socialists, anarchists, environmentalists, LGBT campaigners including trade unionists, students, campaigners and general troublemakers.
