A new report shows how badly Tory austerity is making schoolchildren suffer this winter

A new report from the National Education Union (NEU) has revealed the extent of the suffering that poverty-stricken schoolchildren face this winter. The findings reveal just how badly austerity is harming the poorest and most vulnerable children in our society.
The report

The NEU findings mirror evidence of growing levels of child poverty in the UK. Over 4.5 million children are in poverty, with over 400,000 more children living in poverty since 2012/13. The suffering is even more intense for schoolchildren across the winter period, as the new report shows.

The NEU investigation polled over 1,000 of its members in order to uncover the realities facing schoolchildren this winter. The results of the investigation showed:


46% of teachers confirmed that child hunger during school holidays is worse than it was three years ago.
63% of respondents stated a larger number of families are “unable to afford adequate winter clothes or shoes” compared to three years ago.
53% of respondents believe that “children and young people will go hungry over Christmas”.

The teachers also detailed harrowing accounts of their pupils suffering. “We are buying them coats on a scale never seen before,” teachers explained. One said:

Kids come in without winter coats even in the coldest weather, or with shoes held together by tape.

I saw a headline the other day that caught my eye but didn`t read all the article. It heading was basically saying that people like Cameron, Osbourne et al, who are taken when young and sent off to boarding schools by their rich parents and segregated away into a private world of tuition and privilege can`t POSSIBLY then understand how ordinary working class/lower class people live? Yet these are the very people who are educated to high standards and reach their political ends, while NEVER facing the lives of their constituents and the hell they can find themselves in due to the policies brought in by what they like to call, `compassionate conservatism`. There is NOTHING compassionate about sanctioning people or making them homeless because they have no money as a result of THEIR policies.

Something they might want to think about, but won`t.

It's time we all woke up and put a stop to all this austerity crap. We throw money at the royals, vote for oppressive right wing governments, read biased Tory funded newspapers and believe Tory propaganda on the tv.
In the meantime brexit is used as a smokescreen to cover up the privatisation of our NHS, the homeless, hungry families relying on foodbanks, poor little kids not wanting to go home from school because it's so cold there... I could go on and on.
We've got to get the Tories out.
