It is not enough for us to merely fight against government proposals. Fees, cuts, privatisation – these are all bad and we should certainly oppose them. But more than that, we need to articulate a positive vision for democratic education. This weekend provides an opportunity for student activists from across the UK to come together to work out what a democratic education might look like, and how we can win them.This weekend of workshops is presented by the National Campaign Against Fees and Cuts, and hosted in Edinburgh University Students’ Association’s Teviot Row House.Saturday
