Primary School figures

Today’s Telegraph carries an article about village primary schools which are under threat of closure due to surplus places. They also have a link to these statistics as they relate to Councils.

South Tyneside shows a current surplus of 2215, a not inconsiderable number. Clearly, Labour will be closing a number of schools in the Borough. Now why do I see a more bad publicity around the corner for the Labour mandarins?

Your right the next 2 weeks will be very interesting. I already know which schools are going to be closed as I've seen the report. The one thing you can be sure of is that some of us are opposed to what is happening and feel very strongly about the current leadership playing politics with the future of our children to save their own skins.

Badger : if you are that unhappy in your party, Just come out and tell every one whats going on behind the scenes in the Town Hall.

If you know whats going on with the Schools? Please let Peter Know.

I have heard off a good Labour source that the St. Bedes decision is totally political, and may even be put off till election time. Before if a thumbs up or after if thumbs down.
I ask you should we be suprised?

Two Down One To Go . This is nothing new from our Labour Council.

We the public need to find the proof and get it out into the open.
The person who can help us? I think if he`s telling the Truth is The Badger..
