National Deaf Children’s Society responds to head teachers marching on Downing Street

‏Ian Noon, Head of Policy and Research at the National Deaf Children’s Society, said:
“Head teachers from across the country are marching on Downing Street because of huge pressures on the education system. For children with special educational needs, like the UK’s 50,000 deaf children, a complete crisis is unfolding before our eyes.
“Every child deserves the same chances in life, but systematic, swingeing cuts have left deaf children with a mountain to climb just to reach the start line.
“The Government must now wake-up and listen to the concerns of the entire sector and start delivering on its promise of a world-class education for everyone.”
