  • Michael Gove: Don't scrap climate change education
    Brilliant news - Michael Gove has abandoned his plans to drop climate change from the curriculum! And the papers are reporting that it was the “widespread support” for our campaign that persuaded him to change his mind. As a teacher, it means so much to me to know that young people will have the opportunity to understand climate change and how it will affect their lives. It’s only by educating children about what their future will look like that we can give them the chance to shape it for the better. The outpouring of support for our campaign was incredible. More than 37,000 of us came together with campaigners from the UK Youth Climate Coalition and People & Planet. We signed petitions, wrote letters and took our campaign right to Gove’s Department for Education. Thank you so much to everyone who stood with me to do this. It couldn’t have happened without you.

I’ll be announcing further details on business rates reforms shortly. But I can tell you now that Attendance Allowance will not be included.” This is fantastic news, and thank you so much to everyone that signed the petition and emailed the minister to help put pressure on him. It looks as though Attendance Allowance is safe for now!
