'Oppose physical force in schools' say YFJ and YFE

Responding to Michael Gove's plans to loosen rules over physical force in classrooms, Youth Fight for Jobs chair Ben Robinson said:

"This is an appalling step towards the brutalisation of our education system. If a school student is harmed as a result of Gove's changes we will organise mass walkouts around the country in protest ...

"This is apparently in response to the riots; but how will introducing the threat of violence into the classroom cut across the root causes of the riots? ...

"If Michael Gove really wanted to change the lives of those in school he would start by offering them a future. He would restore EMA and provide real, paid working opportunities for those one million unemployed young people...".
