Who is going to make it better?

18th April 1997 at 01:00
Which party would you trust to deliver real improvements in education?

"I would like to think that I could trust the Labour party, but I am just a bit concerned about their spokesman sometimes. I would like to, I have always been with them but I'm wavering a bit."

Mrs A, Bristol "Any party that's prepared to listen to teachers and to actually have the people who are making policies being those who are actually involved and delivering education. I wouldn't pin that down to any one of the three major political parties. I think none of them is the short answer. "

Mrs S, Bristol "I would think the Lib Dems are as trustworthy as any of the others. I mean, I don't think you can trust any of them."

Mr C, junior teacher, High Peak
