A speech Matt Damon gave at a Save Our Schools Rally in 2011. Heartwarming and heartfelt!
My friend shared this on facebook tonight and it is just perfect timing (though I wish I had seen it before!) as tomorrow the N.U.T. are meeting to demonstrate outside the Department for Education, against Michael Gove's ongoing attempts to destroy the education system of this country, with the utmost arrogance and the utmost disregard for the opinions of people who have a great commitment to children's education-teachers! Details of some of the reasons we are demonstrating in the links below.
Remarks made by those in charge of our education system which show their view of teachers pretty clearly!
