The National Union of Teachers has produced a report into the Cuban education system following a recent delegation to the island.
“There is another way we can teach, inspire and work with our young people to ensure that everyone gets the most out of their education – it’s just a shame I had to go half way round the world to it see it.” Mari Burton, secondary school history teacher, said after visiting Cuba on the NUT delegation in October half-term.

Message from Kevin Courtney to Robin Wales & Quintin Peppiatt
10 March 2017 16:09
Dear Robin and Quintin,
As you know school funding is in crisis. The Government is pushing through ill-thought out plans to introduce a National Funding Formula for schools without putting in the additional funding that is desperately needed. At the same time schools are having to contend with real terms cuts to per-pupil funding, while local authorities suffer from major cuts to the Education Services Grant and other swingeing cuts to town hall budgets.
Attached to this email is important new information about the financial situation of your schools. This information is available through the COLLECT system from the Department for Education. We have permission to share this information because we are not disclosing any pupil census data.
In addition to the data showing the scale of budget cuts over the course of this Parliament, please also find attached information about the funding floor. This has not been available previously and affects 73 schools in Newham.
The best of luck with your efforts to secure additional funds for schools in Newham. If there is anything the NUT can do to support that work please let me know. I have copied in our local NUT secretary.
