This week, I was honoured when Hilary De Santos supported my bid to become Labour’s Mayor of Lewisham. Hilary is a former teacher who taught at Forest Hill School for over thirty years. I would like to thank Hilary for her kind endorsement. To hear her comments, watch the video above.
Education is a right, not a privilege. In Lewisham, we must ensure that our schools, colleges and FE institutions provide residents with opportunities to learn, grow and challenge themselves. As Mayor, I will be at the forefront of the fight for Fairer Funding for schools, and I will make lifelong learning a priority.
The local NUT representative at Forest Hill School, said: “I have worked with Alan on Forest Hill School. I know he will work hard to improve schools & education in Lewisham.”
