Stand up for Rawmarsh’s future


WHERE have our councillors gone? When they’ve chance to shine and make a name for themselves, they are standing out loud and proud with their absence.

What about backing the teachers at Rawmarsh Community School and their fight against the Tory cuts? What’s that I hear, are they all timid Tims or are they Tories in disguise?

I bet their forefathers who fought for jobs in the pits and steel industry would turn in their graves.

What about looking at where the money’s gone and who was to blame for these travesties?

They took all the plaudits when the medals were being given out but where are they now, not standing up to be counted, I can clearly see that.

I have lived, have family and friends, and have worked in this community, and the one thing that stands out amongst its people is they are proud of the education RCS has/is giving their children.

Is this to be wasted just because of some jumped up jobsworth who can’t see the nose in front of their face? Can’t they see what they are doing to Rawmarsh’s future? Stand up to the Tories and don’t watch as another generation is wasted.

Stand up for the teachers and staff who are fighting for education. Less teachers and staff mean bigger classes. I don’t suppose you get that in schools like Eton, but then again our kids can’t afford to go there.
