Pizza and policy: education

Sheffield Green Party last night had its first every “pizza and policy” evening at the Union St Coworking space.

It was a pleasantly sociable discussion – we’re going to hold them about monthly – but some real gems emerged from the discussion.

A few quotes:

“We have to go back to education that helps to develop whole human beings.”

“We need much more education open to everyone, of every age.”

“The only educational institution I’ve every enjoyed is the University of the Third Age.”

“Abolishing Ofsted would greatly cut teachers’ workload.”

And the saddest quote, from a current teacher: “I am under so much pressure now that I wasn’t four years ago.”
