Manchester Teachers’ Association would like to extend our heartfelt condolences to the teachers, pupils and parents of Peshawar, after the terrible tragedy of the attack on Peshawar’s Army Public School.
Christine Blower commented on behalf of the NUT:
“This cold blooded attack is appalling. Education is a fundamental right. Children and young people should be able to attend school in the knowledge that they will be safe. It is shocking that they should have been targeted in this utterly reprehensible way.”
The Steve Sinnott Foundation tweeted “Enough”. No more ! Never again ! Not anywhere ! Choose instead the liberating power of education
Many of today’s papers carry harrowing accounts of the attack.
