Suffolks Schools – the link between poverty and education

So NOW the report on health in Suffolk has again pointed out the link between poor education results and poverty in Ipswich and Lowestoft, maybe the county council will at last take notice of what we have been saying and do something about it?  or are they just waiting until the schools are forced to become Academies –  then can let someone else take the blame???

LIB DEMS SUPPORT “SHELTER” CAMPAIGN TO STOP SALE OF HOUSING ASSOCIATION HOMES

Suffolk Liberal Democrats are supporting the campaign by the housing charity “SHELTER” to stop the new Tory government selling housing association homes. Housing Associations are “not for profit” organisations set up to provide social housing, often using land given at no cost by local councils. Selling these homes will just make the housing crisis worse NOT improve it!!
