Please keep sending us the replies you receive. Many of you writing to your councillors have received no reply, or a form letter (repliesd"tter=see the typical one here), or in some cases even just a copy of a press release(!)

Please note that Tory Councillors appear over the past two weeks to have received new "spin" instructions. This involves replying to your letters by saying that "many parents" are worried not by the abolition of Middle Schools but by "how" that abolition will be implemented.

This is like claiming the condemned man doesn't mind being executed - he's just worried about the method...

We have seen no evidence that this is true, All the letters we have received for this site oppose the abolition outright.

Thus this looks to us like a tactic aimed simply at getting past the planned March 22 vote on school reform.
