Stop the Closure of the New School Butterstone
Sign the petition to reverse the decision to close the 'The New School Butterstone'.
The school recently announced that it would be closing at the end of this week due to lack of funds We need to act now to make sure that this does not happen, and that the students of this school have a chance to continue to flourish in an environment they can thrive in.
Why is this important?
The New School Butterstone was originally founded in rural Perthshire, as a safehaven for education for young people with complex needs such as asperges and autism. These students come to Butterstone having found mainstream education challenging, and find that they are able to get on and thrive in an environment tailored to their needs. Smaller classes, individualized lessons and like minded students.
WHAT will happen to these young people now? Will they simply be segwayed back into mainstream education in large classes, where they will be misunderstood, ignored and left at a disadvantage.
We shouldn't be loosing places like 'The New School...' we should be gaining them, and learning from them.
