Committed Candidates

Educate Together has contacted every election candidate and asked them to commit to Educate Together’s 4 Essentials for Equality in Education.

Below is the list of candidates who have so far committed to education equality. This page will be updated daily during the campaign. 

Help us keep education equality and the need for more Educate Together schools at the top of the agenda in General Election 2016: use this web page and email template to get in touch with your candidate directly and tell them that equality in education is an issue that needs to be addressed. Thank you!
