City protest

A good turn out today with loads of banners and press but when I tried to go in to the executive board meeting I was told that the public couldn't go in. I asked why but got no answer.
Later I found out that there were members of the public there.

Here's the result from the Executive Board on City of Leeds:

The Executive Board is asked to;
i. note the outcome of the consultation on proposals to close City of Leeds High School on 31st August 2011;
ii. the Executive notes the alternative plan put forward by the governors of City of Leeds High School and partners;
iii. request Education Leeds to bring back a report, July 2010, based on consultations with the Governors of City of Leeds High School and other stake holders, during the period of the statutory consultation, exploring all options to ensure the continued use of the site for educational purposes;
iv. approve the publication of a statutory notice to close City of Leeds High School on 31st August 2011.

A disappointing result to say the least but there is to be discussion before the final decision is made and Education Leeds has been directed to explore all options.
What that actually means is anyone's guess.

The fight goes on.
