A union leader has spoken out about a protest over government education policy, which attracted thousands of people to Nottingham today.
NASUWT general secretary Chris Keates told ITV News Central she was "frustrated" that the government was not listening to the views of teachers.
Thousands of people are expected to attend a rally in Nottingham today to voice anger over Government education policy.
The ‘Rallies for Education’ have been jointly organised by teachers' unions NUT and NASUWT, and expect parents, governors and members of the public to join teachers in their campaign.
Another rally is also due to take place in London today, and other cities in the coming weeks. There have already been protests this year, including in Liverpool on June 27.
