The National Education Union (NEU) launched an indicative ballot on 15 November for industrial action over school funding.

At the same time, Socialist Party member James Kerr is standing for election to the Inner London seat on the NEU's national executive committee.

James says: "A vote for me means teachers will have a fresh, new, young voice in the leadership of our union. I will argue that we push forward until we have won our demands in the funding ballot.

"Once the consultation ballot is won, there must be no delay in moving to a ballot for action if the government refuses to back down.

"This campaign is critical to us defending education and protecting our members. This time we have to get it right and need a leadership with a clear strategy to win.

"We can't keep having one-day strikes and then no follow up. We need teachers to be genuinely involved in deciding exactly how to step up the action."
